COMMUTER WATCH APP PROTOTYPE
Written by Frederic Kalinke
Unexpected delays and disruption are all too common for public transport users. The Labs team tapped into its heritage of seamless journey planning across transportation modes (trains, subways, buses, bicycles, ferries etc) to address this, and has created a prototype watch app to help alleviate commuter pain, making the experience as simple and smooth as possible.
The Commuter Watch App works by using real-time data from operators to create push notifications for travellers, ensuring they get the travel information they need instantly; information such as departure times, platform details, delay notifications and journey fixes. This will help smooth out the commuter experience, streamlining timings and making sure the right transport option is selected.
