I live in the DC area so I thought that a Metro bus tracker would be a good idea. We'd need to have a database with all the bus stops and certain buses tied to certain routes. Many Metro buses already have a GPS on board so we also need to get in contact with headquarters to see if we can work something out with them.

The application can then track the buses tell you their estimated arrival time, your distance to the closest stop, when you should leave to make the bus etc. It can also be ported over to other places like NY or San Fransisco.

Work on this project has just begun by myself and a few colleagues so we're not really absorbing anyone into the development group anymore, but if you would still like to help or contribute ideas that would be great.
