I am looking at developing a website sort of like ones that NY-area commuter railroads have, showing train departure times and tracks. One major transit hub near me has no central location for this info (either online or in the hub itself), and it makes commuting through the hub a real hassle.
My website would by much much simpler, however; it would just list the route, list of departure times and tracks (as the tracks are set in advance at my hub and don't change except when timetables are revised, a few times a year).
- Is public transportation track info the IP of the public transportation provider? (If so, I'd need to get the provider's consent, I know.)
- There are a slew of public transit apps available for the NY subway, and surely for other transit providers. Are there any surveys that are available for these apps' revenues, development costs and profits?
