This is a simple, handy web map (friendly for mobile devices too) that helps you figure out how to ride your bike to transit.
It lets you view transit stops, routes, and real-time bus/train positions alongside bike routes. You can also tap transit stops for basic information.
This new version of the site was made with MapBox, Leaflet, and TileMill. Base map & bicycle route data derived from OpenStreetMap, transit info from TriMet.
Targeted demographic (who is the app intended for?):
Transit users, people who ride bikes
Who and what will be impacted by the app, and how?:
Hopefully it will help you figure out your own way around a little easier without pulling up several different maps.
What is the specific need that is addressed by the app?:
It is rare to find bike routes (especially from OpenStreetMap) displayed on the same map as transit route and stop information.
Anticipated usage of the app (by whom, under what circumstances, etc)?:
Web app that works pretty well on mobile devices too.
How is information presented, that's not presented elsewhere; how is it unique?:
What are a few of the primary strengths of the design?:
Uses open data, simple design.
