It's a GRT web app =O

Looks good! I wouldn't mind having this instead of the current set up, as it should often eliminate the need to go into the stop page at all - might be helpful for the same purpose to linkify the routes, though maybe it would look cluttered. To free up some screen space, you could probably ditch the "Next Trips" text (could have "in 2 min" instead, perhaps).

Anyway, thanks for putting this together - it's very handy.

Latest additions:

Stops are now being displayed as an option on trips/route pages: http://grt.frufru.ca/trip.asp?trip=406712&...p;stopsonmap=on . They're also clickable xD

A new route selector: http://grt.frufru.ca/route.asp :)

The query involved for getting the branches was actually a pain given the way the GTFS was structured, and it still may have issues. Please let me know if you encounter any :o

Since you guys (I think mostly Calvin though) are putting route descriptions into the wiki (like http://www.cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php?title=G...0_%27iXpress%27 ) , I was wondering if some visuals (i.e. the route overlaid onto Google Maps) would help, such as this: http://grt.frufru.ca/trip.asp?rtdisplay=1&..._merged_1008764

You can pick other routes from here: http://grt.frufru.ca/route.asp

Would having links to these pages from the route pages in the wiki be of interest? Let me know what you think. I can make special modifications to the pages for this purpose if you want to.

If this goes ahead I think I'll also need to make changes to the URL structure since the current way would result in needing to update it at just about every service change even if the route doesn't change.

Test it with one route and post in the wiki, and I'll see if I like it.

Not related to the wiki, but I think the bus route maps are really neat. And the stop symbols are also handy, though I find they get in the way of seeing the entire route.... maybe they could be smaller when the map is more zoomed out? Or just have an option to turn them off.

OK, a few more adjustments....

I've added a sort of "mapping" from the "friendly" URLs to even more "friendly" ones... like http://grt.frufru.ca/12-To-Conestoga-Mall (derived directly from the signage in the GTFS data) can also be accessed by http://grt.frufru.ca/12-Conestoga-Mall , and http://grt.frufru.ca/200-iXpress-To-Ainslie-Terminal can also be accessed by http://grt.frufru.ca/200-Ainslie-Terminal . The "nicer" link is the one displayed as the "Direct link" on the route page, but both of them still work.

Also note that these mappings need to be added to the database manually by me (I've only added ones for the 12 and 200 so far), so let me know what other ones you'd like me to add.

Hmm... well for the trip displays I've had them default to "off" with a link to turn them on. Maybe I'll just apply that here as well. What do you think of it now?

Thanks! Looks good, I think. (I have to admit that I hadn't realized it was different in certain displays.)
