I didn't know they had a public API, so I just got access to that which should make the coding aspect extremely easy.  Reconsidering the wireless aspect now though, didn't realize how expensive the WiFi-Shield was :/

Sorry, meant to say LCD display, not LED.  Although I guess either would be suitable

Hello, hopefully this is the right forum for my question.  I am just starting to learn about Arduino and thought of a neat project and wanted to know exactly what I will need to complete it and if it was even feasible.  I use public transportation daily and am looking at using an LED display to show a few different things - Time, Temp, Bus Number, Next Arrival Time.  Most likely on two lines, all coming from this website, http://www.ctabustracker.com/bustime/eta/eta.jsp.  I would prefer to have it sitting away from my computer and router, so a board with built in wireless or a wifi shield will be necessary.  Since I am starting from scratch, what all will I need to buy to complete this project?  Side note: I am pretty confident in my coding abilities, but everything else will be pretty new to me, is this too hard of a project to start with?

Thank you!
