  1. New year = new updates! Some nice (I hope?) changes that might make the usability a bit better (like UI updates, speeding up autorefresh, clearing out some old junk). It looks even better on a phone now! Saw that @maths22 has also been getting ya'll some good stuff with the updated API. I don't think a lot of the data they pull makes sense to replicate here, but let me know if I'm wrong. Cheers!
  2. The bus finder has been updated to automatically refresh once a minute. I might need to reduce the frequency since buses don't really update their position that frequently.
  3. Hi friends, it's been a bit more than a year since i last popped in. Just wanted to let you know that I finally a) remembered what i wanted to do with this and b) had the time to do it. App should now be mobile friendly. I fixed up that bug where the old position stayed on screen as well. Hope this helps the few of you that are using it!
  4. @MTRSP1900-CTA3200 yes! i would love to make some changes to make this look a little bit nicer and work a little bit more cleanly. Some changes based on some of the feedback that others above have shared, others which i just want to do as an exercise.
  5. thanks friends for all your feedback and thoughts! @garmon757 i had created this assuming that people would want to know where a specific bus was at the moment, rather than as an ongoing tracker similar to the CTA bus tracker. I'll take a look and see what i want to do on that front. @bushunter i'm planning on ensuring that this site is mobile friendly/responsive. Since this is an exercise for me to practice, i'm not currently planning on doing an actual iOS/android app (yet?) but I'm just trying to make sure it uses all those fun new web techs that are relevant, and mobile is a big on
  6. Hi everyone - I've been lurking for a while but finally got the push to actually sign up and post! One of my goals for the year has been to build a webapp that might be marginally useful to people other than me, so I've created a very basic Busfinder. Busfinder allows you to input the bus ID (as shown painted on the buses and on the cta bus tracker). It will then put a pin on the map where the bus currently is. It's extremely barebones and sometimes buggy, but I wanted to get it out sooner rather than later. I figured that with the electric pilots (700, 701) and the holiday bus (4335)
