I would like to see the NYC subway info added, MTA makes a ton of data available:
http://datamine.mta.info/

I often lookup the stops on a particular line, i.e. "MTA C" --> http://www.mta.info/nyct/service/cline.h...

That page is okay, but doesn't have the full picture. An overlay of that line on an actual map would be useful. And any incorporation of MTA's real-time data to know where the trains are on the line would also be useful.

The other thing I do a lot of is reverse searches to find stops closest to an address, i.e. "subway stops near 15th and 7th Ave." I end up doing this manually by searching for the address in maps and scrolling around to find the closest subway icon.

Thanks!

Interesting idea, this should be done world wide, not only for NY subway.

Nice idea, maybe could be done using OpenStreetMap map, given that it's open source, and worldwide search would be better than one subway/metro.

I can pick this up and use the template we're using for the SEPTA IA.
