Near My Train
Do you ever get tired of walking long distances holding groceries? Have you ever wondered if there's a Whole Foods within walking distance of your train line? If so, Near My Train can help.
Near My Train allows users to specify their train line and home stop, and search for places along the line within walking distance. It was created using the react-native-mapbox-gl library for rendering the map and map markers, and the Google Places API for searching nearby places. The list of subway stations was supplied by NYC Open Data, and was processed to sort stops in the order in which they occur when riding on a line.
If you'd like to know what kinds of places live near your line, check out Near My Train and nearmytrain.herokuapp.com.
