OneBusAway App Information

Documentation for Software Developers

We have a considerable amount of documentation for software developers who want to deploy or extend OneBusAway. It is hosted on our GitHub project wiki: https://github.com/OneBusAway/onebusaway/wiki

Sign Mode

OneBusAway servers provide a nifty sign mode. This lets you point any web browser at a web address with a particular format, and presto, you have a scrolling bus arrival sign in large font. For example, try Stop #600 for a busy stop in downtown Seattle. This can provide an inexpensive way to provide real-time information in lobbies of buildings, coffee shops, or anywhere you can have a flat screen display with an internet connection. More documentation is here.
