This is a React app that relies heavily on goodservice.io's APIs to dynamically generate real-time route maps for the New York City subway with the help of Mapbox, particularly useful when service changes regularly occur on weekends and overnights.
A Mapbox theme was created for this project and has been made public.

To have nice looking paths, download the GTFS schedule files from MTA at http://web.mta.info/developers/developer-data-terms.html (agree to the terms, look for "GTFS" then download the data for New York City Transit). You'd need to parse out the
shapes.txtfile from the GTFS package. I wrote a script that takes .csv files to generate these paths. Each .csv file is expected to be a contiguous path for a train route. I took the first shape path (with some exceptions) for each route in
shapes.txtand dumped each into its own .csv file before running it.
