One day Joyce was on a very long bus ride, and she fell asleep. When she woke up, she found herself at the bus terminal. And so that's how we came up with this idea.

What it does

It notifies (through vibration and notification) the user when they're a certain distance (of their choosing) from their destination. Moreover, it tells the user the name of the route they'll be taking before they start as well as which stop they'll get off at and how many transfers they have left.

How we built it

With tears, Google APIs (more tears), and Android Studio

Challenges we ran into

google api pls

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Actually finishing the app

What we learned

Android stuff (and that there are 4 different types of Google API keys)

What's next for WATnextstop

Creating BuzzStop - a bus seat that can be installed in a bus and that vibrates (or shocks) when you're close to your desired stop. Potential customers include GRT, Homeland Security, and the University of Waterloo.
