Dude, Where's My Bus?

Riding the bus is often fraught with uncertainty. Is the bus coming? Have I missed it? Is it running late?

It lets you see if "your" bus is running on time, taking some of the guesswork out of waiting for public transportation.

Here's a screenshot from my iPhone of the bus routes serving a particular stop:

Where the busses are.

If you ride the bus in the Seattle area, you need this. Hook yourself up at One Bus Away.
