So its been a while since we last spoke.
I have been in the lab working on what is coming for TransitChat next, but more on that to come.
Since I began the rewrite of TransitChat in the beginning of the year there has been a lot of talk about what is next for public transit software on the web.
A couple of weeks back there was some discussion about whether or not GTFS should have GeoJSON in the standard. Which honestly is kind of a big deal for a lot of people. Being able to visualize this information on the web without converting it on the fly is important to building great web applications.
For years I have been doing this to visualize route and trips on a scheduled basis, but after a webinar about adding GeoJSON to the GTFS feed and whether or not there was sufficient support for smaller agencies. I decided to open up my GTFS to GeoJSON conversion to the web.
If you are just needing a quick visual of a transit agencies stops and routes you can take a look at the link below
