We show the route number now, but it might be nice to show the route name too.

I believe so. If we can work it into the UI somehow, that would be cool.
But I don't want to force it. The UI looks pretty good now

Ok I guess I misinterpreted this issue. Correct if I'm wrong

The route name is a bidirectional designation and right now we are using bus end destination as the direction sense.

It would be a one or the other sort of thing rather than both at the same time.
http://www.gohrt.com/route/norfolk

Example: Route name Naval Station Norfolk/Hampton Boulevard (EVMC/FNS)
gui mock:
[2] Navalstation => EVMC/FNS if going southbound [time here]
[2] EVMC/FNS => NavalStation if going north to station [time here]

not sure if that would be an improvement to the UI or make things more confusing

Let's look at this example - Route 2. The GTFS data has this to say about Route 2:

route_long_name: HAMPTON BLVD
route_desc: Naval Station Norfolk/Downtown Norfolk
route_short_name: 2

It runs between these two stops
WOOD & CHURCH
HAMMOND & ADMIRAL TAUSSIG (Naval Exchange)

So, right now the app tells the user, this is route 2 head towards WOOD & CHURCH, or some such. It would be cool if we could add the route long name into this, maybe in the extended info? So it would say Route 2 (Hampton Blvd) towards Wood & Church. It would also be nice if we could add a new table where we manually translate the stop names to what HRT uses in their promo stuff. Wood & Church is actually know as Downtown Norfolk Transit Center. So it really should say Route 2 (Hampton Blvd) towards Downtown Norfolk Transit Center (Wood & Church).
