Routes and Reps - SEPTA

http://www3.septa.org/reps/

Find Elected Officials for any SEPTA route.

A user selects any route on the septa.org system, and the app returns a list of all the political districs through which that passes in the form of maps, and lists of elected officials.

This app was created at the #hack4d hackathon.
