Currently clicking the Station Name in a price list routes to the Station Detail page unless the station owner has partnered with GBO, in which case it links to the owner's Web page. The latter denies users the Station Detail page (unless they have technical knowledge of how the URL for that page is formed and construct the URL). This suggestion overcomes that.

It is proposed that when a partnered station's Station Name is clicked, it links to the Station Detail page as it does with non-partnered stations. The top of such pages would have a countdown display that would automatically link to the partnered owner's Web page unless the user stops the count by clicking the count number. By clicking the number a second time, the user could resume the countdown and proceed to the owner's page.

This method allows the user exposure to and access to the Station Detail page if he so chooses, else it proceeds to the owner's page as agreed to in the partnering arrangement. countdown
