Calliope released another transit app today: calliope.mobi/#/transitapp/
"The best way to navigate the New Orleans transit system, this interactive app allows you to easily access all RTA routes throughout Orleans Parish. It pulls real-time GPS data so that you never have to wonder how far away the bus or streetcar is from your stop. Continuously updating every 30 seconds, the app shows you the location of every vehicle, how fast it’s traveling, and the animated icons turn base on the direction it’s heading. The Transit App makes using New Orleans’ public transportation so much more convenient.
- Updates in real time every 30 seconds
- Dynamically updates route information over the internet
- Shows best guess at vehicle direction (after first 30 seconds)
