Hi Tom,
I'm not sure if you checked this yet but here is a .pdf file that lists some shuttle options by state. This was updated right before COIVD-19 hit so you probably need to check with each to see if they are currently operating. Hope this helps!

I sent to the personal email you provided me. Check your spam filter perhaps.

Solved: The dots were used so a more broad summary of the article could be viewed in a small space.  I had to click on the article to get the full article without the dots. 

Yes, it attempting to show the text around the keywords used in the search on longer posts. Great question!

ACA Mobile Route Apps / Re: New Navigator App/old purchases
« on: March 05, 2020, 06:38:49 pm »
Might it be a good update to be able to use the Restore Purchases feature across platforms?  By your login, Adventure Cycling knows it's you.

Purchases on the apps are through the app stores directly. The Apps do not use a login and the app stores do not provide customer details back to us. The apps do not have a login or track users. When we moved from the apps that were for specific routes to "Bicycle Route Navigator" that includes the entire route network, we worked with customers that contacted us to move purchases from the old apps to the new. We are not able to move purchases from iOS to Android or vice versa.

ACA Mobile Route Apps / Re: Latest (2/20) App update
« on: February 27, 2020, 06:53:11 pm »
We really appreciate the feedback on the new version. The initial pin is now the ending point so that the "Distance from me" feature will work easily when just placing the single pin. The order was reversed when using the "Distance from point" measurement option so that the first pin placed is always the endpoint. We think this allows for more functionality in the app but is a change in methodology for those already using the app.  You should be able to still make the same calculations in the correct direction when planning the next day's ride but it does require doing it a little differently. We will definitely listen to user feedback on this feature and take that into consideration in future releases.

If you prucashed the .GPX data files you could open the services files in a text editor manually copy service data that you want into a another file that you would print. You could find and replace to remove tags and other non-needed information form the file.

I may be the dumbest person on here...  though just found a ‘restore purchases’ button. Life is good again.

Not at all. The question definitely is asked often. Glad you got it sorted out and I hope you enjoy riding the routes!

Thanks. As a certified social media manager and a background in IT, please make your site mobile friendly rather than put expectations on others to find a bandaid approach. It's better for traffic to your site in general, if you care about such a thing.

Thanks for the info on how to use your site.

The theme is now responsive and should perform better for you on a mobile device.

You should be able to place two fingers on the map and then move them to rotate the map to your preferred direction.

I'm a little confused about this.  Does this mean that you need to manually change the orientation of the screen when you change direction of travel? 

On the current version you should be able to go to settings and select "Move the map with me" to get it to move along with you after you have set the orientation by spinning the map with two fingers. In an upcoming release, you will have the option to select the top of map to be either "North" or "In the direction of travel".

GPS & Digital Data Discussion / Re: Navigator App vs GPX Data Question
« on: December 16, 2019, 11:19:46 am »
That is correct, the Bicycle Route Navigator App is self-contained. Route data is purchased within the app and may not be exported. The .GPX Data exists for those that want to use a Garmin or similar GPS device. You can also use the GPX data on a number of third party routing and navigation apps available for mobile devices.

The Bicycle Route Navigator App is designed to be easy to use. The GPX Data is available for the user with more advanced needs that have the desire to use the data on GPS units or third party applications of their choosing.

P.S. please make the site mobile responsive friendly.

It appears that the app's have been taken offline and currently only the web site is active. I have no actual details, just what has been posted here:
