Were you one of the folks who ride the bus on Monday who waited, and waited, and waited… for your bus to come. Two University of Washington doctoral students have devised what sounds like a great way to find out when your bus is coming. Just call OneBusAway at 206-456-0609 from your cell phone (or any phone) and follow the automated prompts to find out your bus stop number. A computer checks a database of current bus locations, and a robotic voice tells you when your bus will arrive. You can also access the system online at www.OneBusAway.org or using an iPhone.
Check out an in-depth story on the system here. And let us know if the system works for you. It sounds like a great way to keep from standing out in the cold!
