Santa Clara Valley Transit Authority (VTA) runs buses and light-rails in Santa Clara County. An unfamiliar rider might not realize how saturated the bus system has become. With this application you will be able to see where and when the buses will arrive and where they will take you.
This application is built in response to a programming competition for VTA. The app downloads the GTFS data file provide by VTA, loads, and displays the stops on a Google Map. You can Click on the Stops and see the arrival times as defined in the data file.
The application is still under development.
A future version will display the route schedules in a manner consistent with current printed route schedules.
A future version will include an algorithm to determine the best way to use the buses to get to a specific destination.
A future version will include notification to remind the user when to pull the chord.
