Initially entitled "Time To Go," this tool helps commuters decide when to set out in order to catch a bus. The system uses real-time information about the progress of a desired bus and the location of a commuter's mobile phone. The system determines when the bus is due to arrive at the nearest stop, and notifies the commuter by sending a text message.
