CV Transit version 2.2 awaiting review in App Store, best week ever!

CV Transit has just had its best week ever! Thank you for riding the bus Corvallis! This week also brought some snowy weather our way, and I got a chance to field test version 2.2 in snow conditions. There were a couple of behaviors that I noticed. The first is that when a detour was in process, the ETAs for bus stops that were skipped were always 'red' meaning they didn't have an ETA for the bus in the next thirty minutes. So, paying attention to the ETAs on the route can help you see when a detour is going to affect your bus stop.

CV Transit 2.0 Released!

CV Transit 2.0 was a significant upgrade from the previous version. Not only were there changes in the fundamental way that the transit data was utilized, but now the bus's location is shown on the map. I worked hard on this version during the "great snow" event we had in December here in Corvallis, Oregon. We got about eight inches of snow and the world came to a halt. Schools were closed and nothing was normal. This included the bus system, which could be running over an hour late.
