Where's my bus?

Where's my bus? Logo
Team Name: 

Where's my bus is an iOS and Web application that helps users plan their journeys using Canberra' public transport bus system. We saw that a major problem with the public transport system at present is accessibility of the data - there is so much data relating to the public transport system that it is very easy to become confused - more than 200 individual routes and 2500 seperate bus stops make it difficult to present all of the data in an accessible format. In our iOS app (developed with Swift 2.0), we have a map of the ACT with a selection of bus stops near your current location.
