The Amazing Convergence of nextbus.com

Years ago, Nextbus.com had a crazy proof of concept, java applet, one route real time bus map for San Francisco. It was of questionable utility.Now they have an iPhone friendly site of spectacular usefulness. You can find out when any crazy old SF MUNI line will show up next.

A very good thing: You can bookmarklet specific stops, on particular routes, in a given direction for fast, one-tap info. Surprisingly awesome. Other cities are served as well, I believe.

I know I sound like a total shill, but it does really "Fulfill the Great Promise" at long last.
