Sightings of My App

Last night I was waiting on a bus in 5 points after some drinks with friends. Among the 12 of us who were waiting on a bus, I noticed two young girls, who we clearly not from Birmingham, looking at their phones to figure out what bus to ride to get back to their hotel near the convention center. As I looked over their shoulder, I saw they were using my App! That right there was enough to make me realize that all the work I’ve been doing for the last 1.5 years has been worth it! So, if you haven’t already, give the buses a try and use my app to help you.

Updated Trip Planner with Route 41 – Fairfield

I have updated the trip planner for the BJCTA Max buses to include new routes. The 41 Fairfield has been completed. You can download the data off of the GTFS Data Exchange.

My Trip Planner already includes the latest data. Or you can download my Android App for free from below.

Google Updates Streetview for Birmingham

Google has recently updated all their imagery for Google Street View in Birmingham, AL. Not only are the images much higher quality, but they have expanded their areas of coverage too.

This is great news for my Bus Stop Cataloging project! This will make it much easier to use my StreetView cataloger website. It is now easier to see the bus stop posts, the data is more recent and therefore more accurate to some of the newer route changes, and it covers more areas which means I can finally go back and fill in those missing spots!

If you’d like to help out, please visit my StreetView Cataloging website and start finding bus stops!

New version of Android Trip Planner App

I have released a new version of the BJCTA Trip Planner for Android phones. This includes a few small fixes to the geocoding and starts the app centered on BJCTA’s central station, instead of some random location in Nebraska. As always, get it for free from below or in the Google Play store.
