Madrid (cont'd)

Some more changes on line 6 in Madrid after the fire at the Windsor Tower: only the "Nuevos Ministerios" station remains closed (probably for some time).


H. Zeiser has decided to enhance the file for Bochum and Geselkirchen (Germany) with the bus network.

Freiburg Im Breisgau

Another new city will be added in the next release: Freiburg Im Breisgau (Germany), not to confuse with Fribourg in Switzerland. The data was sent by F. Wissler.

Stuttgart (again)

The previous update, a few days ago, did not correct all the changes in the Stuttgart (Germany) network. Some more were sent by G. Surlovski.

Den Haag (The Hague)

After a long walk on a supposed bus connection in The Hague (Netherlands), K. de Bondt suggests to change 2 stop names and remove the connection ;-)

Bug in MetrO for Palm

While testing the new database for Berlin (the changes are still in progress), M. Ciesielski encountered a bug in the program (PalmOS version). When "tapping" on the header in the POI list it either crashes or displays random characters.

I have fixed the error.

Thursday, February 10, 2005


I fixed a small error in the Tokyo (Japan) database, spotted by P. Spee (a missing stop on the Musashino line).

Sunday, February 06, 2005


A new stop was opened last Friday on the Genova (Italy) subway line.

Bruxelles / Brussels

The STIB will soon increase the fares on the Bruxelles public transport system. L. Debacker provided the update (as usual ;-) for the MétrO database.

San Juan

After the subway and the places of interest, Z. Lozada is checking whether he could also get the other transport systems in the San Juan database: we started with 3 boat services and 1 bus line...


D. Pouliquen (?) sent a mail about the Brest (France) database: a few minor errors to fix and a railway to add.

Thursday, February 03, 2005


After a pause, M. Soltau has completed the Rhein-Neckar (Germany) database with the Heidelberg bus lines.


As announced earlier, I updated the Berlin database with the changes happening at the end of the month on the S-Bahn network.

New York

The MTA decided that the damages caused by last week's fire in Chambers Street will not require years to repair, after all. Service is almost back to normal and an updated file will be published shortly on the MetrO home page.

Thanks to H. Hofstatter for his mail!


R. Drake reported a small error in the Barcelona (Spain) file: the TMB lines now start service at 5 AM on Sunday...

Tuesday, February 01, 2005


I have finally implemented the important changes on the Berlin network, and I will soon update the S-Bahn lines (with a new service starting at the end of the month).

For once I have been late: M. Ciesielski sent me the information long ago (in December) and I apologize for the delay in delivering the new version...
