In particular, as a car-less city-dweller myself, I wanted to talk to developers who are filling the gap when it comes to public transit navigation, to find out what they thought about the way it’s been implemented, what’s coming next, and how all of this will ultimately pan out for users. Right away, I should note that developers obviously stand to benefit from this change. It gives their apps another opp (IT news)
