Edinburgh and its surrounding area are well served by an efficient bus network. The City of Edinburgh Council (CEC) have worked with the locally owned bus company (Lothian Buses) and a system supplier (INEO Systrans) to deliver real-time information to meet passengers’ needs, initially through bus-stop displays and then a website. This case study described how it was later extended to smartphone users through a cooperative and flexible approach with two individuals who had developed Apps for iPhone and Android phones.
