Jared makes iPhone apps independently and for PayPal, Inc.

Catch The Bus

Don't rely on schedules! Catch The Bus provides real-time, GPS based prediction times for when your bus will actually be at your stop. Currently supports Boston's MBTA and San Francisco's MUNI.
Enabled by data opened through the MBTA Developer Program, this app was the first iPhone app to take advantage of this data when it was released in late 2009. It has spread virally via word of mouth across Boston T riders, but it also works for the San Francisco MUNI and 16 other public transit system. The data is powered by GPS units in each bus, which is supplemented by the MBTA schedule and predictive algorithm powered by a company called NextBus. Finally, Catch The Bus accesses the API and presents it in with an intuitive and fool-proof UI. The average CTB user uses the app 44 times each month.

This app (as well as Catch The T) has been covered in local news TV, The Boston Globe, The Metro, The Herald, The Pheonix, and several other publications. From this experience, Jared has gotten to meet with Governor Deval Patrick, MA Secretary of Transportation Rich Davey & very many local hackers and MBTA innovators.

Catch the Bus is available for both iOS and Android. The Android version was created by Serkan Ozel.
