I’ve used TTC (Toronto Transit Commission) to get to work and move around in Toronto. They implemented a good service where each bus is equipped with a GPS device transmitting its location and through today’s technologies that information reaches the internet and the phone of each one of us accurately and in real-time.
The apps available for WP7 didn’t have all the features that I wanted so I decided to build my own app.
Some features I wanted in my app that didn’t find in others:
- Fast access to favourites
- Map with routes
- Information for multiple cities
- Alerts (TTC only)
You can find the application here: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/realtime-bus/69bd4a05-65b4-4633-b40d-7d18d9f46edc
