Learn A New Way To Move
Apparently MetroTransit found some money because there are a handful of new features on the web. The first is a fun new Flash site entitled "Learn A New Way To Move" and located at bustrainrideshare.org. Interesting.
The deisgn is fun and nicely enhanced with Flash. It looks like a well-worn booklet with lots of fun stuff wrote in the margins and hand-written tabs. Fun stuff, and fairly well-deisgned although it could use a non-Flash version.
The other interesting move is a promotion of their busier routes. Routes that come more often then every 15 minutes will be marked as "hi-frequency" routes. The promotional blurbs say that you won't have to check the schedule because you know the bus is coming soon. Of course, thoes doesn't actually reflect any changes in the system, just a promotion of their better-traveled routes. Hopefully it will follow that more routes will be moved up to "hi-frequency" status.
