I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. add a "show me how" link that details the bus/train links used to get there in that amount of time.

    If possible, it would be nice to see how some of these time are achieved. I live in DC and some of these look pretty optimistic. If you've found better ways to get around, I want to be able to go from pretty pictures to more efficient commuting!

      This is a good idea! Technically it requires a bit more effort. Be aware that Mapnificent is not a trip planner and is partly guesstimating. But if it appears overly optimistic in some parts, an analysis is definitely important. Will do, but need to figure out right UI and implementation, may take some time.

        Please list all the different transit agencies that would need to be added. Please list available GTFS data for these agencies, if data is available. If data is not available, please write to the transit agency and ask them to publish GTFS data for developers to use free of charge.

      • Please add Melbourne!

        What a Brilliant tool! Great for research purposes.

          In order to add your city, the local transport provider needs to publish its public transport data in the GTFS format.

          Please write your public transport agency and ask them to provide developers with GTFS data for free and under fair conditions. Point out the benefits they have when developers build cool applications like Mapnificent based on this data.
          Please report progress and post any relevant links here. Thanks.

                    Munich does not cooperate with Google Transit beyond Google Maps layer data (no routing) and therefore probably does not have the necessary GTFS data available. Sadly German transit agencies are most often locked in with external routing software providers who have no interest in publishing their data – even if this would greatly benefit their customers.

                    Please make a request to the MVV here: http://www.mvv-muenchen.de/de/home/meta-navigation/anregungen/index.html
                    and ask them to make their data available for free as GTFS.

                        Data for Berlin has been scraped more than a year ago and is not maintained.
                        Berlin currently does not publish public transport data, that is why it’s out-of-date, incomplete and possibly incorrect. Please request machine-readable and freely available data from the public transport providers BVG / S-Bahn / VBB.

                        Cheers,
                        Stefan

                          IndyGo does not participate in Google Transit and does not publish their transit data as GTFS, so I cannot build a Mapnificent for Indianapolis at this point. Please contact IndyGo and ask them to publish their transit data as GTFS: https://www.indygo.net/feedback.asp
                          Emphasize the benefit for their customers when developers are able to build cool applications on top of their data.

                                I am happy to include the data as soon as it’s made available by the different transport agencies. I am currently following up on AC Transit’s plans to publish GTFS data.

                                Cheers

                              • Add Seoul.

                                Seoul apparently publishes data in the GTFS format, as all of South Korea shows up at the "http://www.google.com/transit" link you provided. There are many, many Westerners living in Seoul. I believe that the added features provided by your service would be appreciated.

                                  Apparently Seoul only gives the data to Google and not to the public, at least I couldn’t find any (it’s difficult without speaking Korean).

                                  If you manage to find publicly available GTFS data, please post a link. If not, please write to the responsible public transport authority and ask them to publish their data!

                                            At the moment the Reno data feed is broken (stop IDs are referenced in stop_times.txt that are not defined in stops.txt).
                                            I will add Reno as soon as I get notified that this is fixed.
