Realtime BART Display

Realtime Transit Display

One way to make transit more attractive to choice riders is to supply better transit information. I built a simple, attractive site that lets users create a realtime arrival display for any BART station using BART’s API. It shows realtime arrival information for all lines serving that station, BART service announcements, the time and current weather. It also has the option to show retro BART images as a background.
It can be used by anyone to create a permanent, realtime transit display. Coffee shops, offices, and stores near BART stations might find this a useful way to inform their customers of how much time is left until their train. Visit BART Realtime Display | Source
I also created a version with MUNI’s realtime API customized for my home which is mounted to the wall of my kitchen.
