I just ran across the best google map hack yet:
Seattle Bus Monster
and the more I browse the site, the more impressed I am.
Some of the things to notice:
- real time bus location information with estimated arrival times!
- real time traffic cameras
- bus stop information
- the ability to search for a bus top and/or route
- route markers drawn over google maps!
Everything about the site is professionally done. For example, try typing in “2nd and Spring” when searching for “bus stops”. The site will return all the 2nd and spring locations in King county!
Play around and I think you will find that Chris Smoak has made the life of Seattle transit commuters MUCH easier.
