We’ve now added transit data from 80+ agencies to Walk Score as part of our grant from the Rockefeller Foundation.
While adding transit to Walk Score we realized there was a larger opportunity to:
- Highlight all the great apps that use public transit data
- Show which transit agencies do and don’t provide open data to software developers
So today we’re launching a new site called City-Go-Round where you can search for innovative transit apps and websites in your city. You can also check whether your transit agency provides open data.
Find apps in your city:
These Apps are Rad
We had no idea how many innovative transit apps were already out there. Here are some of our favorites:
One Bus Away: Find out exactly where your bus is in Seattle. Check City-Go-Round to see if your city has a real-time arrival app.
Acrossair: Hold your iPhone up to see augmented-reality transit maps. Whoa, the future is now.
Exit Strategy NYC: Perhaps the most creative app we’ve seen, Exit Strategy NYC shows you where to stand so you can get out of the subway station faster!
A huge thank you to Benjamin de la Peña and team at the Rockefeller Foundation for supporting City-Go-Round and public transit on Walk Score.
