Missed topic in hbus story 

Transport Canada funded a project exactly the same as the hbus.ca back in February 2004.

To the editor,

I enjoyed last week's news article, "Day tripper" about hbus.ca.

Your reporter, Holly Gordon, may not have been aware of the brief success of a Transport Canada-funded project to do exactly the same thing hbus.ca has done in Halifax. Information on the Transport Canada website indicates that the Halifax Bus Route Finder system went live in February of 2004. Metro Transit once even included the bus finder on their website. 

The article would have been better if the author had asked Metro Transit about their experiences with Transport Canada's project, and whether it influenced their current plans.
