There is a certain happiness sighted when your bus comes along. It is of course a small specialized form of happiness and will never be a great thing.

Google Transit's new look

Google Transit is sporting a new look. Click on the big image below to go to their site. The other nifty feature Google Transit recently added is the ability to specify light rail stations. Here's an example that worked. Now if Google Transit could get a "feeling lucky" option, I could use this to help the wife. Unfortunately, the wife discovered today the pitfalls of relying on a teenager to deliver her to her bus stop. She missed her bus. Worse, she didn't realize she was late. Had she appreciated why no one was waiting at the bus when the kid delivered her, she and the kid could have driven to a point in the route where they might have caught up with the bus. Instead, the wife ended up at 65th Street waiting for an outbound train. Not a good start to the week.
