Again, Portland takes the lead with coordination with Google Maps. They’re now offering real time arrival information via the maps service itself!
Impressive, I hope to see this in other cities soon!
UPDATE #1: They’re also slowly starting to restore service. Of course, the locals bitch on as always (see 1st comment), even though this is an improvement in service.
UPDATE #2: Ok, so a couple of my long time readers got all riled up as if me stating Portland is making some progress is a jab at Seattle. I understand there is an unspoken tit for tat going on between these cities, but I wanted to add that Portland is doing the above, but Seattle also is getting things done: For instance, SDOT has started a massive repavement effort on Dexter. Check out these links for this awesome transit + bike improvement effort (which of course auto drivers will benefit form also, and hopefully kill less people in other cars, bikes, or pedestrians). Cheers!
