BART adds Developer App Center to bart.gov

One theme I noticed in the BART Mobile Applications Rider Survey results was that some respondents didn’t seem to be aware of the many 3rd party apps available for real-time alerts and trip planning on the BART system.

In an effort to help riders find the available tools, BART has provided links to many of the mobile and social apps available for their system through bart.gov’s Developer App Center.

One question I have, though, is why it’s called the Developer App Center. That makes it sound like it’s for developers, instead of end-users.
