Earlier today, a few local blogs mentioned my T-Comm website (a live map of all the buses in Metro Vancouver):
- This real-time Vancouver bus tracking map is pretty obsession-worthy (Vancouver Is Awesome)
- Vancouver bus tracking map allows you to track movement in real time (Vancouver Courier)
- This map will tell you where every public transit bus in Metro Vancouver is (Urbanized Vancouver/Daily Hive)
The site wasn’t really designed for day-to-day navigation, but more for transit enthusiasts who are looking to find specific buses (e.g., the double decker test buses we have on the streets right now, 1008 and 1009). In addition, I’ve also heard that bus drivers also use the site to locate their bus as it arrives to their pick up point.
I wish I took some time to polish up the site over Christmas, since it’s pretty much still running on the same code base (both in the user interface, and behind the scenes) as when I created it six years ago! Nevertheless, it’s cool that the site’s been found and mentioned by some local online media, and to spread some “transit geekery” out there.
