Data feed for Seattle Bus stalled out

A quick update for folks looking for help with Seattle Bus:

The site that the application uses for it’s data source ( has been intermittently available recently, and today it’s been down completely. This is a site run at the University of Washington, and I’m afraid I don’t have a direct contact with the administrators.

There is another site with similar data provided by King County Metro (not as well structured) – so I may end up re-writing my scraper/parser to pull data from that site as I have no details on when or if will come back online.

I wish there was a better way of providing this data to you – I’ll keep everyone informed through this developer diary as I have updates.
