We want to create an app for new and experienced bus users that allows them to look up bus schedules, track the current location of the bus, find the next one coming and learn how to get to a desired destination.
This app uses an api that is already public. In fact an app also already exists for finding the next bus at your current destination. The existing app however, is confusing and hard to use since it was designed for all buses that have the nextbus api. While google maps has the ability to look up bus schedules in the area, it has trouble providing routes since it is confused by the reno intercity bus and does not offer bus gps tracking.
Our app will be tailored for the Reno market, making it easier for users to find on the app store, easier to use and with more robust features.
