Tubus: Calculate How Much Is Left in The Next Bus

Tuesday 8 March I had the pleasure of match Jerónimo Palacios, CEO of Tubus, in the Android laboratory in Malaga. In his presentation he was talking about the current landscape of the development of Android applications and we also gave as an example Tubus, a project which is now working.

Tubus It is a web application based on HTML5, which allows us to know What bus stops nearby our position and how much is left to get it. A simple concept that demonstrates perfectly how a good idea can be really useful applications.

As we have already mentioned Tubus It is not an application like that exists in the Android Market if that is not a web application which can be accessed from any browser. Once we enter, and allow the website to access our location, will show us what stops nearby, which lines go and how long it will take the next bus.

The data of Tubus, they are public, are very reliable at least in New York, which is where I have done tests with the service. Perhaps the only downside that I see in the web application is that the design is too “iOS”, otherwise is a great service if you use the bus frequently.

Tubus currently is available in Eleven Spanish cities. Namely: Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Valencia, Granada, Zaragoza, Donostia, Bilbao, Malaga, Cordoba and Elche.

There are also other alternatives like Bus Step that also work really well. However to use this application in particular we have to go downloading different apps depending on the city. I.e., there is a Bus Step for Madrid, one for Barcelona… While in Tubus We have the information of all available cities without downloading anything.
