Hi,

I am interested in developing a real-time bus tracker for the Bus on
iphone as well as on a web page.
I've taken a look at the API and have two questions:

1. For the arrivals cgi request there is a stop number (stop_ID) field
that the client must give as input. How can I find the list of stop_IDs for a
given route or physical location? For the vehicles cgi, it seems like you can just leave the vehicles parameter blank and you will get an enumeration of all vehicles, but this doesn't work for the stop_ID/arrival cgi.

Also, the stop_IDs appear to be different for the cgi request and the webform listed at
Why is this?

For example:
http://hea.thebus.org/nextbus.asp?s=2103
is for waialae/st louis drive

but this produces an error:
http://api.thebus.org/arrivals/?key=<REMOVED>&stop=2103


2. What is the process like to get more than 250,000 hits per day?

Also, I sent an email to api@thebus.org as your documentation says to for the requests per day limit change, but this isn't a valid email. I called thebus customer service and they verified for me that the email didn't work, and that I should use this forum for support. Please let me know if there is some other channel of support.

ping.
Can someone from hea post a message just to let me know someone is reading these boards?
FYI the app I am interested in developing would be free.

Ok, so the errors seem to have been fixed.

That being said I would still like answers for questions 1 and 2.
Please let me know how I can contact you.

How were you able to get this link? I did not see this in any documentation. Are you in contact with the developers of the API?
