How can mobile and desktop applications make our cities and communities more livable?

An app allowing public transit users in Oakland give feedback on their good + bad experiences.

The app would allow the user to check in at a bus stop (like 4sqr) would let the user remark on the punctuality of the bus, as well as other objective benchmarks like - how crowded it is (or not), if they are able to get a seat, if they were able to bring their bike, if the driver was kind or sour (or driving safely) -- and share that information with other opted in bus riders and users.

        Third would be great for all communities. I live in a small city in berkshire county, ma and if you ever need the bus its ridiculous. they come once an hour, and if they are early you are out of luck!

        i'm all for this initiative. i was recently without a car for a year and relied on public transportation and i def wanted to voice my opinion about some krazy marketing tactic McDonalds was doing in conjunction with public transit, they eventually took down the adds on the bus however i strongly disagree w/how the adds were placed b/c the adds made the bus passengers into active supporters and advertisers of McDonalds- yah, i could explain more about this. sounds crazy i know, but it did happen for a while...
        anywho, let me know how i can support. Public transit passengers should be afforded more voice and impact in how public transit can better serve those whom use their services.
