The Ruby Line - v1 Sinatra

Making your DC commute a little less painful. Get to where you need to go. Know what's coming next.

Built in Sinatra as part of a collaborative project with a Front-End Student from The Iron Yard. This project was later ported to Rails and adapted for iOS app development purposes. You can find that repo under "Green Apple Line."

I loved working on this project so much that I decided to add even more features. The full product will be featured at The Iron Yard May 2015 cohort Demo Day as my final project.

Features

WMATA Metrorail predictions

This will pull data for arrival predictions for the station closest to a fixed location. Location is based on latitude and longitude and must be passed in as parameters.

GET "/rail/:lat/:long"

Capital BikeShare information

This will pull data for dock and bike availabilities for the 5 closest docking stations to a fixed location. Location is based on latitude and longitude and must be passed in as parameters.

GET "/bike/:lat/:long"

Future Features

WMATA Bus predictions

This will pull data for arrival predictions for bus stops within 1mi of a fixed location. Location is based on latitude and longitude and must be passed in as parameters.

GET "/bus/:lat/:long"

Fare Estimate Calculator

Get real time fare estimates for yourself or a group of people from one destination to another. Determine if it's worth your time to save a dollar or two by riding WMATA or if it's peak of the peak and calling an Uber might be more worth it.
