I know of a lot of you are probably frustrated that OneBusAway is pretty much useless (no real-time, no snow reroute info) on a day when you need it most. I'm pretty frustrated too, if only because I have been working with King County Metro and other agencies over the past couple of months to try to get adverse weather reroute information into OneBusAway.
The good news is that we are making a lot of progress, but the bad and somewhat obvious news is that I didn't finish in time.
Of course, you could argue that I've had two years to prep for this, but we've only recently had time and resources to work on service alert information in OneBusAway. And the lack of gps-based tracking for King County Metro buses is always going to be a problem.
All I can say is that I'm working hard to be ready for the next storm. And to prove that this is not just a vapor-ware promise, here is what you have to look forward too:
