bjbus.com

My current favorite website to play around with is bjbus.com. With Marina in town, we have needed to figure out how to get to locations that had previously been off our radar screen (like the now-legendary Marco Polo Bridge and, unfortunately, the Beijing United Family Hospital).

The best little feature of this website is how it maps out your route from one bus stop to the other. Sure, there is the Mapquest-like dark line that connects your starting point to your ending point. The real fun, though, comes when an animated bus appears and drives along the route. If only it were so easy in three dimensions...
