OneBusAway in Seattle Times

OneBusAway, a transit app by UW CSE’s Brian Ferris and collaborators, is praised in this Seattle Times article:

“One of Seattle’s least-known secrets is a magical app for your phone.

“It can make you more efficient, reduce stress, give you more time, save you money and help the environment.

“Best of all, it’s free.

“You don’t even need an expensive smartphone or one of those wireless plans that cost as much as a car payment.

“I’m talking about OneBusAway, an app that tells people when their bus is arriving. It started in 2006 as the side project of a University of Washington student and grew into a transit app platform used by software developers, researchers, transit agencies and 50,000 commuters a week.”
