History

2015, October

Multiple changes and improvements to the interface. Safe HTTPS protocol. Quick access to routes, ratings, schedules, and voice dialing..

One more how-to video. Here the interface is more detailed, with responsive layout to fit small screens of mobile devices..

2013, November

Here the user interface is already well defined and you can see it in action online in real time.

Entry made within a few days of site creation. Most efforts were focused on geolocating the bus-stops and registering them with certain routes. Good mood and optimism are a must for such tedious work. Here you can see the first outlines of the interface and yellow squares of route numbers, which have been in use ever since.
