App of the Week – Urban Engines
Published on March 3, 2015
Shave minutes off your commute time with Urban Engines. Not only is this app a great public transportation route maker, it also serves as a highly functional pedestrian companion. Using fare card, GPS, and other available data, Urban Engines creates a digital replica of your transit network, including actual route times, delays, maintenance location of trains, passengers on the platform, and more.
Busses can be color coded based on occupancy, and real time transport maps are available for easy information on what your commute will be like.
Transit workers are also expected to use this app to improve services in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Portland, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, Vancouver, and Washington D.C.
