More on the Connex theme…
Connex, please give me a website that shows the actual schedules of all the currently running trains. Surely you have that information on hand? Just expose it! You could even integrate it into your excellent metlink website.
Your SMS updates service isn’t for me. It only tells you when a train is going to be >15 mins late (not so useful particularly when I work only a few minutes from a station). You’ve also got to register the times you are interested in; since I travel at varied hours I’d have to register to many timeslots – and therefore will get many useless messages. Finally – frankly – I don’t trust you to not send advertising or bogus SMS’s. Don’t take it personally…I don’t readily give my mobile number out for this kind of service because a few businesses have abused the privilege in the past.
So if you could just whip up a site to allow me to see how timely our trains are running I’d much appreciate it. If you need a hand developing it let me know.
