We hate waiting for trains on the station platforms and wanted to do something about it!

How it works

Use realtime service data from the MTA as well as Google walking time estimations to calculate the optimal departure time and send notifications to the user's phone and watch

Challenges we ran into

Processing the MTA train data with protocol buffers and GTFS-realtime

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Working effectively across a team with a wide skill set; time management and prioritization

What I learned

Simplify the problem!

What's next for Routeo

Integrating with calendars and learning user behavior to further optimize travel time notifications
