Sightline points us to SpotBus a web mash-up that grabs data from various local trip planners and presents it in an easier, more intuitive way. It’s a neat idea, and hopefully the start of something bigger. I especially like the no-frills, mobile-friendly interface. As more and more of us transit riders walk around with wireless, GPS-enabled pocket computers (a.k.a. “cell phones”) riding transit will become much more intuitive.
