Metro’s website has a new tool to find the nearest bus stop to any point. The results page gives you a bunch of nearby stops, with links to more information about the stop and walking directions.
This won’t solve any huge problems, but I’m encouraged by the culture of continual innovation and improvement that a widget like this suggests.
Minor gripe: I’m able to generate some results where the walking directions turn up as “#11080–Walking distance exceeds one mile or is not safe”. If so, why is it coming up at all?
