City Someone Start a Web Site Like This in Seattle, Please

Not that we’ve got much in the way of alternatives, but here’s a cool site in DC (where I’m visiting my parents right now) that gives you maps and times and details so you can live life without owning a car. The site sets you up to to get around on alternatives like rail (Metro), buses, bicycles, carpools, vanpools, flexcars, zipcars, and taxis.
I was texting with a friend back in Seattle last night—updating each other on our nights out on the town—and voila: I, tipsy on some drinks, just hopped the Metro at 1am (last train came at 3:12am) back to my folks. My friend, having had some drinks himself, was, yikes, tooling around in their car looking for parking, ughh.
Just one of the benefits of rapid mass transit on a Friday night in the city.
