With the Transit-HUB app, Nashville residents, commuters and visitors now can plan trips using public transit, watch real-time bus locations, receive smart trip notifications and get step-by-step navigation.

Key features of the app include a real-time bus tracker, navigation, service alert notifications, calendar-based personal transit schedule management / notification and a comparison view to evaluate different trip options. By making public transit more predictable, the app encourages customers to use public transit more often. The comparative route view compares public transit options against the cost of using a car. A summary view provides the cumulative time customers have spent using public transit, and that information can be shared with friends.
This system is powered by real-time vehicle locator data provided by the Nashville MTA and cloud-based smart analytic services developed by the SCOPE and MAGNUM labs at Vanderbilt’s Institute for Software Integrated Systems under a research project sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
NOTE: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Although I've just used this app, I should say it's very good and impressive. It's simple, but really beautiful. Easy to use. Five star, no doubt!
The app is easy to use. The interface is succinct. Real time bus plan is one of most impressive highlight!
