Timetables and/or full schedules?

Right now, we have full schedules: http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/connector/pdf/401.pdf (that include timetables and maps) as well as just timetables: http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/connector/pdf/401wd.pdf online. Is there a preference as to whether we keep both, or simply go with full schedules?

  1. Personally, I like seeing it in a map form along with the timetable.

      Clarification question: So do you mean you'd prefer the full schedule because it shows the map, or are you choosing the timetable plus the web map? Thanks!

  2. Well, I like having the map accessible for unfamiliar routes, if it's accurate (585's isn't correct on the interactive map, at least.)

    But I *hate* having them as pdfs. Not mobile friendly at all.

  3. If the timetable and the schedule are going to both be PDFs, then I would rather just have the timetable and the map.

    However, if possible, I would love to see a system similar to what Philadelphia's SEPTA system uses (www.septa.org). Each route has a timetable that is not a PDF as well as a downloadable map and schedule. This makes it easier for those who don't have the computer/internet power to download and bring up PDF files quickly.
