  1. Add Frankfurt

    How about adding Frankfurt (and the general urban area, including places like Offenbach as they are usually within 30minutes)

    • Let others participate

      We have analog data from the transit of our town. I don't ask you to enter the data from every little city or even village but if you provide a way to enter the data on my own I'm glad to do so!

          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
          Stefan

        • Add travel costs

          Use colours or bands within the resulting travel area to indicate ticketing costs, based on data obtained from transport authorities' travel planning websites. For any network based on travel stages or zones this should be fairly easy, if the stage information is included in the GTFS data...

            Public transport fare rules are sadly overly complicated and opaque in most cases. Also only about half of all agencies on Mapnificent even have fare rules.
            Displaying fare zones might be possible, although I’m not convinced if this still fits the core capability of Mapnificent. I’ll look into the data and possibilities.

          • 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!

              • it would be cool if you had colored time zones to show how long it takes to different places

                It would be cool if you had colored time zones to show how long it takes to different places. So for example a green zone would show how many places you could get in 5 minutes, yellow for 10 minutes, etc.

                      Please link to the Transit agencies website and their data. There is currently no dataset for Cincinnati on gtfs-data-exchange.com. If no data is available, please ask the transit agency for GTFS data.

                          • Add train times too (eg for london .. to go MUCh further)

                            There are fast trains eg 17 mins to slough (20miles) .. but these do not seem to be included

                            • Try to account for people driving to stations as opposed to walking

                              I guess you could determine which stations had parking and make an assumption that stations with parking have one set of criteria while stations without parking have a different set of criteria.

                              • base the route tree on the current time/date

                                when this goes mobile (and i assume you're on that already) it would be rad if it picked up your gps location, read the time and date and then gave the "accessible regions" based on the current time and date. eg - the region would get much smaller on hollidays and week ends. a little smaller after 6pm, and would be biggest during commute hours.

                                as it is, this is awesome for planning, but less useful in the immediate moment.

                                    • Include the Long Island Rail Road

                                      Awesome, awesome site! Glad to see that 'show me how' links are on the way.

                                      In the NYC map it has the Metro North RR and even non-MTA services like PATH trains and some of the Nassau buses, but no LIRR to Long Island suburbs.

                                        • Add an option to limit transfers

                                          There's a big difference between a 20 min ride with no transfer and 20 min ride with 2 transfers. Currently, both trips are displayed the same way.

                                          Therefore, it would be very useful to have an option to limit the transfers. And maybe also to specify the transfer time.

                                          As a good default, you could preset 1 transfer and 5 minutes for transfer time.

                                          Besides, great project!
