This week, there will be works affecting the RER A service in Paris (France) from Monday to Thursday after 22:30. And of course, station Bérault should re-open on Monday. Download the updated "temporary" files:
While collecting geographic coordinates for Den Haag (Netherlands), I discovered many severe errors, due to the stop naming scheme (the same name is used for stops that are in completely different places).
Our online service has been silently enhanced in recent weeks, with many new cities where the "find a route by address" feature is available.
The covered cities now include: Amsterdam (Netherlands), Arnhem (Netherlands), Berlin (Germany), Boston (USA), Chicago (USA), Eindhoven (Netherlands), Los Angeles (USA), Madrid (Spain), Napoli (Italy), New York (USA), Paris (France), Philadelphia (USA), Sacramento (USA), Toronto (Canada), Utrecht (Netherlands).
This feature is enabled by getting the geographic coordinates for the stops. Therefore, if you want to add a city to the list, you'd just have to provide these coordinates ;-) as described on our "Contribute" page.
Please note that there are a few cities where we already have coordinates but the feature is not activated for one of the following reasons: - Google Maps does not provide address geocoding in the country (which is the case for London, Santiago de Chile and Singapore); - Our coverage is not sufficient to provide an efficient service (concerns: Copenhagen, Lisbon, Tokyo, Vancouver, Washington, Vienna).
V. Lei suggested some improvements on our latest version of the San Francisco (USA) database as well as an update on the evening works affecting Muni Metro lines K, L & M.
He also began preparing some data for the Muni Bus network. Since it will probably be too large to integrate in the current database, we may end up creating a dedicated SF Muni database, including the Metro & Bus services. Any advice on these plans are welcome...
R. Mucznik noticed that the database for Lisboa (Portugal) included in our "international" package was not free from accented and other special characters. While searching for the problem, I also fixed an error and a few inconsistencies in the data.
M. Ciesielski informed us of works affecting service on the U9 line in Berlin (Germany), from July 23 to October 29. The first phase is already included in this special version of our database. Another update will be delivered around July 30, when other changes are planned.
