TrackRE is a Predictive Public Transport Information (PPTI) service designed to keep the passenger informed of their bus throughout its route. One of the most troubling problems passengers face even today, is still the unpredictability of the waiting times for their chosen mode of transport (buses, trains...). This is caused by random traffic conditions and unavoidable operating delays. While transport operators increasingly try to assist their passengers with live support, to date most passenger information services are far from delivering a satisfying solution. TrackRE has been developed to solve the passenger and transport operator problems by predicting the unavoidable traffic delays in real time, to make life easier for the passengers as well as transport service providers.
