iOS Simulator Screen shot Nov 23, 2012 1.35.29 PMThere are 3 main screens available. The first screen shows the list of stops available on a particular route. There is a selection button available that lets you pick which route you are interested in seeing. If a route goes two directions (say Eastbound and Westbound), you can also switch directions. The alternate direction might have a different set of stations.


iOS Simulator Screen shot Nov 23, 2012 1.35.33 PMThe second screen shows all the stop times available for that station on that route. This is important to note, since the same station might be used on several routes, the times shown are only for the selected route. This will let you select what time you need to be at the particular station to catch the bus or light rail.


iOS Simulator Screen shot Nov 23, 2012 1.35.36 PMThe third screen shows the stop times for all the stations on the route for the trip selected. So you can determine when you will need to get off at your exit station. You can also use this to select what time you need to be off the bus or light rail at a particular exit and work backwards to determine what time you need to be at the entry station.
