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.

MAX Bus Route 40 Available on Trip Planner
BJCTA MAX Bus Route 40, Fairmont, has been completed and is available on the trip planner. The BJCTA Trip Planner Android App will automatically pull in the new route and so will the online trip planner. The 3rd party apps like HopStop will take a while before they update. Â You can find the trip planner at:
BJCTA Routes Available on 3rd Party Apps
As I have been working on cataloging the BJCTA bus stops and generating route data, I have been posting it online at the gtfs-data-exchange for anyone to use. While major companies like Google won’t pick up on this data until it is certified by the agency, smaller 3rd party applications are.
Over the weekend, HopStop updated their app and included my transit data for the BJCTA buses. HopStop has free apps on Android, iPhone, and Windows phone devices. While I have released my own trip planner for android devices (BJCTA Trip Planner), I don’t yet have one for iPhones or Windows phones, so I’m glad to see 3rd party apps incorporating my data!

If anyone knows of any other 3rd party apps that have picked up my GTFS data, please comment!
BJCTA (Max) Bus Trip Planner for Android
I have created a Trip Planner app for Android phones. This was based on an open source OTP project that I was able to modify and customized to run against my trip planner. Â It costs nothing and has no ads. Please give it a try an let me know if you like it! It is available in the Google Play store under the name BJCTA Trip Planner.
