I put together as a little project to get to know the General Transit Feed Specification and address some of the issues I have with Google’s otherwise excellent transit routing. First, I’m willing to walk pretty far to a transit stop. Second, I want to see more options at one time. Finally, I want a hard limit on transfers (Google does provide a less transfers preference). I also really wanted to show off my amazing UX skills.
