As a web developer who runs a blog about commuting, I'm intrigued by this site HopStop which helps you map your way from place to place using public transportation. It's neat that they've got Boston, and I did a quick test for a few addresses and it works well. But really, am I likely to go to a web site for it to tell me to take the green line to park, then switch to red and out to south station? Couldn't I just print a map and follow the route with my finger?
I suppose it's good for tourists. If I was heading to Chicago or something and wanted to try their subway, I'd be more in the audience for this service. But who am I kidding, when I go to strange cities the last thing I'm gonna do is get on their subway!
HopStop has an API available. Anybody got any ideas on what you'd do with such a thing? I am a coder, after all :).
