Charlottetown Bus Schedule on Mobile Phone

T610 showing Bus Schedule ApplicationI’ve been hacking around with WML this afternoon, trying to patch together a mobile phone browser version of the Charlottetown Bus Schedule. Doing mobile phone development on a Mac has been painful because there’s not a good WAP/WML emulator for the Mac (if there is, please point me to it!).

What I’ve got so far is an application that prompts for bus route and street number and name; it then returns the closest stops to that civic address, with links to the schedule for each stop.

You can take this early version for a ride: if you don’t have a WML-capable mobile phone, use this web-based emulator. The address you need to enter in either case is:
