Can We Design the San Francisco Public Transit App?

David points us to Designing Chicago: New Tools for Public Transit, a project under way in the Windy City to build an app that finally, once and for all, truly serves the needs of transit users in a big city. He goes on:

Cool crowd funded, crowd sourced public transit app for CTA in Chicago. You would think that with all the social app startups in SF, someone would try to do something like this. Maybe it’s because they’re all too busy riding around in private shuttle busses to realize how shitty Muni is.

Feel that hopefulness? I get where he’s coming from. Nothing against some of the better apps out there. But something like Design Chicago could (should) happen here.

Okay, who’s ready? And who’s leading this thing? Not me. Heh.
