In the near term, focus is now on growing Pantograph’s regional footprint. Some smaller eastern Washington and Oregon agencies will be added soon to round out the northwest, as well as some other west coast agencies.
In addition to my personal roadmap, I’ve added five “adopt a region” Patreon tiers—one for each of Washington, DC; Denver, CO; Boston, MA; Honolulu, HI; and Montreal, CA. When a region’s tier gets funded at $20/mo, that region will jump to the top of the list for future inclusion. If you have another city you’d like to see added, include it in the comments below.
While growing the list of supported agencies, my other near-term plans include some UI enhancements to the iOS app (likely alongside iOS 14 this fall) and making some other basic data available about the current state of trips. New features, including a schedule browser and more data analysis, are in the cards for the medium term.
Pantograph remains an entirely independent project by me. If you’d like to support my work, you can do so directly on Patreon or subscribe to Pro in the iOS app. You can also follow me on Twitter @kona404 and the project directly @Pantograph_App.
Pantograph is a powerful utility for tracking transit in real-time. With support for 11 agencies across the Pacific Northwest and growing, the tool provides in-depth analysis on the current state of the transit system, past performance and coach usage, and more—serving riders, agencies, and transit geeks alike. Pantograph is available as a native iOS app or on the web, with full support for desktop and mobile browsers and installable as a web app.
