Transit Agencies Without Open Data: We See You

A new site from the people behind WalkScore shows you where to track your commute, and singles out the transit agencies who are failing to let you.

From City-Go-Round's mission statement:

"Our mission is to help make public transit more convenient. For example, an app that lets you know when your bus will arrive is way better than standing outside waiting for 20 minutes.

If we can make public transit more convenient, more people will ride public transit. More people riding public transit equals less driving. Less driving equals a healthier planet."

The home page of the site features a running list of transit agencies on that fail to open their data.

VERY handy...

The search-enabled/spatially indexed links to transit/transportation apps (and thumbnail descriptions of the platforms the apps work on) are especially useful.
