Multimodal Travel Using MTA Services

Does anyone here think it's possible to use GTFS data to complete this task on a mobile device? The bus schedules alone are in the 100s of MBs and very hard to condense into a useable format for mobile devices.

    Yes, it is entirely possible to store all the data necessary to plan intracity multimodal journeys on a mobile device while offline. You'd need to store the schedule and street/transfer data (or graph representation thereof) in a binary format for the sake of speed as well as space. The schema would be dictated by the journey planning algorithm you choose to use.
