I’ve been in Seattle now for about ~6 weeks. I’ve gotten a lot of the transit options figured out, landed an ORCA Card with the appropriate pass, and have sort of gotten used to the idiocy of “pay randomly sort of based on when we’re leaving or entering the city, except when… clause 1, clause 2, clause 3, etc”. So with all that, what I want to know is how I can determined with Sound Transit Bus is going to have wireless and which ones do not. I generally ride the #545 to Redmond and can get a lot of e-mail and other such things wrapped up before even stepping in the door to the office. This is a good thing for my work day.
In other questions, how do I find out news about the transit options in a single place? So far it is far too time consuming to dig through Metro, Sound Transit, and the other websites to figure out all of this. This brings me back to something I started to do about 6-8 months ago and am thinking about it again. Figuring out which transit sites are good, and which are horrible. King County Metro’s is one that is possibly going under the horrible list. The site is a cluttered mess of UX #fail. Sound Transit’s is pretty good, albeit there could be some navigation clean up.
Well anyway, if anyone out there in Seattle’s Transitverse knows the answers to these I’d love to know. Thanks!
