Note that you have to register and provide an email address. So far they've sent me a participation update and an update on two of the questions I responded to. These have status changed to "in progress"; I think that means that PAT will be acting on the suggestions. Amazing power that I have... or maybe it's not just me. (For the curious: open API for bus info; smartphone app to locate bus by GPS.) Note that this is a limited time offer, open to the end of the month.
