Bus Timer

Authors: Arash Haj, Bijan Karrobi, Dashaylan Naidoo

What is the problem?

As for many students and residents of Vancouver, public transportation is critical in how we commute to work, school, or places around Vancouver not quickly accessible via walking. There is a lack, despite the high volume of commuters, of an application that helps give reliable and easy to read timings for buses near a person. We want to alleviate the stress of wondering which bus a person should take by giving them the list of buses they could take depending on their location and what time they want to depart or arrive.

What is the something extra?

What is the in-depth aspect you will do? If the problem is related to some other group's project, tell us how they fit together. If in doubt, include the information.

Similar to the BusStopFinder project proposed by another group, we will be utilizing Translink's API to fetch relevant bus route information in real time. Our interface will allow a user to locate buses based on proximity to stops and arrival/departure time. Any of these query parameters will be adjustable by the user to allow for a stress free transit experience.
