Help - Where is your bus?
This application shows bus stops, bus timetables, bus e.t.a.'s and bus routes in the Christchurch and Timaru area from Christchurch's Metro Bus systems.
To find a bus's stop, e.t.a.'s or bus stops timetable information, the user either enters a street / shop in the search box or zooms in to a particular location.
Once zoomed in, bus stops appear as blue bus icons and the coloured lines represent the bus routes on map.
Also on the left hand side all the bus stops in the present extent are shown on the menu.
The user can click on the bus stop either on the map or from the left hand menu to see when their next bus is expected (updated every 5 sec's - e.t.a's are in minutes only), or lookup it's timetable.
You can even see the bus stop in Google's Streetview so you can familiarise yourself before going to the bus stop.
If this bus stop is somewhere you regularly frequent then there is a facility to add this to your favourites. The next time you visit the application on the same computer the application will zoom to this bus stop and open the bus stop dialog for you. You can have more than one favourite, but only the first is used to zoom in.
On the right hand side the the user can click on a selected bus routes. This will zoom out/in to the extent of the bus route so the user can understand the route the bus goes. From here you can also open directly the bus routes timetable (as-posed to the bus stops timetable mentioned earlier).
Lastly you can share the application via social media buttons at the bottom of the page.
