Hey there fellas,
QBNer rosem and I have made a browser based, location-aware CTA bus and train tracking app. We just launched it today and would love to get your feedback. We are still finishing the desktop presence, so forgive the small type and any errors you may see while viewing it there. Thanks!
Greetings from a fellow Chicagoan. Can I ask a simple question? How is this different or better than the CTA's own MyTransit app?
Im pretty far away to have access to it :-(
@mg33 the goal of the app was to provide a quick display of local bus and train times based on your location. The user doesn't have to input an address or select a route. As well, all other apps we looked at were device specific and offered zero desktop functionality. Hence the web app. ETA works equally well on iOS android and desktop (though the type is unbearably small right now).
Specifically to the the cta bus tracker app, it leaves something to be desired in terms of usability and user experience.
We tried to make something clean an simple so you can easily scan the page while walking without having to do anything other than load the app.
- Cool, I will test out on my phone. I looked at work earlier, but didn't have much time.mg33
- Great! Let us know what you think.wordssssss
- Is your profile pic you? I feel like you look familiar.mg33
- No. It's my old boss from Los Angeles. He did live here in the early nineties tho.wordssssss
FYI - getting error page after allowing location detection. Being asked to reload application.
Also, I'm curious - I remember something in the past two years with the mayor saying they were going to put this data out there for people to use and "build things" with. Any inspiration/motivation from that behind this?
