Friday fun poll: what features do you want to see on TransLink’s mobile site?

How the TransLink mobile site (m.translink.ca [1]) appears on BlackBerry and iPhone.

Well, this is a fun poll with real implications!

As I’ve mentioned [2], we are currently working on a project to revamp our mobile site and iPhone app, with a launch tentatively slated for spring 2011.

We’re currently in the brainstorming phase for features and priorities, which makes it it’s the perfect time to throw it open to your input! Just a few caveats before you launch into it though:

Also, given that we’d like lots of input, I’m going to leave this poll up for two weeks or so, to really give some time for people to get into it.

And now, the poll—I’ve preloaded it with some obvious suggestions but they are by NO MEANS a fixed list that we are starting from!

What features would you like to see on the TransLink mobile site? (pick as many as you like)

  • Optimized performance (speedy, clean design) (20%, 89 Votes)
  • Save favorites (stops, routes, trips) (20%, 88 Votes)
  • Trip planning (19%, 83 Votes)
  • Enhanced maps (14%, 64 Votes)
  • Fare info (7%, 32 Votes)
  • Destination info (points of interest, special events) (6%, 27 Votes)
  • Social media (TransLink's Twitter/blog/Facebook feeds) (5%, 24 Votes)
  • Feedback (include feedback form) (4%, 19 Votes)
  • Other (share more in the comments) (4%, 18 Votes)

Total Voters: 125

(Yes, the poll widget’s width is way too narrow, but there doesn’t seem to be a way for me to fix that, blargh.)

Anyway: feel free to make all kinds of suggestions in the comments—just again, make sure to indicate priority, and know that we can’t do everything!
