Project: bixiBookmarks (Web App)
bixiBookmarks is a tool that helps you quickly check the status of your favourite Bixi Stations, by first searching for the station names and creating a custom URL for your favs. On iPhones, you can use this shortcut to quickly access your custom URL.
I built it to help me quickly check what bikes were available along my route, I found the existing Bixi and Transit Apps don’t quite offer a quick way to access this data. Bixi’s data is openly available to poll online through their Open Data program.
This web app is coded in PHP and uses a SQLite database to cache the Bixi data stream every 20 seconds.
