Real-Time Bus Information for Pierce Transit is here! Just a day or so ago, One Bus Away started providing Pierce Transit's real-time arrival information through it's development server.
The information should also be available on OneBusAway's suite of services including SMS Messaging, an iPhone App, an Android App, via a mobile website, or even via an automated telephone service.
One Bus Away is looking for testers to see how accurate the arrival information is. If you see some issues, be sure to report them to firstname.lastname@example.org. During my lunch break I watched the buses on Pacific from my office. It seemed pretty accurate and predicted exactly when 2 Pierce Transit #1's that were bunched together would arrive.
Tacoma Tomorrow would like to send out big thanks to the IT Staff at Pierce Transit and Brian Ferris over at One Bus Away for getting all of this work done! Also a thank you to Sound Transit is also deserved for funding a large part of the technology upgrade that made this possible. Can't wait to see and hear the reactions.
