OneBusAway for Apple Watch

OneBusAway is an open-source transit timetable application that is offered in many municipal areas across the US. For the past few months, I have spent countless hours of my own time creating an Apple Watch companion application for the app.

During the creation of my companion app, I considered how I use my Apple Watch, and what features were lacking in similar applications. In my research, I realized that one of the main issues is that wearable applications are often bloated with too many features. I elected to give the application 2 views: nearby bus stops and bookmarked bus stops.

I have also been experimenting with a "Routine" feature, which presents preset commute information personalized for a user, including bus delays and timetables.
