    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.

        The map for the Metro area of Phoenix and it neighboring cities is great. I believe the map information is only about 6 months behind which is fantastic but I would like to see more of the feature in the video done to Arizona. Is there a time table for that to happen? Also I would like to thank you for creating such a wonderful app.

        I can't find it listed on Google's public feeds, but the agency for Phoenix is Valley Metro, which operates the light rail line and most of the bus service in the area: http://code.google.com/p/googletransitdatafeed/wiki/PublicFeeds

        Light rail, rapid lines, and the Tempe city bus system are probably the most obvious starting points, although my guess is that you'll find the whole network on a single feed. That is, if you can get it. According to this talk thread, Valley Metro doesn't provide a public feed for political reasons: http://groups.google.com/group/phxdata/browse_thread/thread/adf2e9a3f6a1066d?pli=1

        What a great way to market the assets surrounding light rail to locals and travelers all over the world!

        Quite honestly, I doubt such an application for our bus network would get much use compared to the effort it would take and therefore likely isn't worth the time. Instead, the payoff would come from focusing on the light rail.

        Valley Metro RPTA is the umbrella agency over a Balkanized system with several players, but the City of Phoenix Public Transit Department "owns" much of this data and has traditionally been reluctant to share it. Our bus and rail schedules now appear in Google Transit, but I can't find a public GTFS feed. That may be something that interested Phoenicians have to lobby for.

        Please add Phoenix. Drivers there need to know that they can get around on transit and bikes!

        This is such an awesome utility that Phoenix can use to demonstrate the power of a connected system--tying light rail with bus, Rapid lines, and Express buses.

        I love this city soooooooooo much!!! I've seen so many awesome changes since moving here 9 years ago. I'm loving the progress!

        We need this in Phoenix b/c we need help educating/surprising the majority of Phoenicians about how much amazing stuff actually is accessible via our light rail!
