How much it costs to develop a real-time public transit companion like Transit App?

How many times have you been through one of these situations – you missed your bus and will now miss your train! Or you found unexpected traffic on your way to office for an important meeting and when you reach the bus stop, but the bus is so crowded that you cannot board it.

We all have experienced how frustrating it can get, right?

Here is the problem – most of the cities in the world have a deeply established public transport system. Yet, the service of this very system is not very consistent. Thus, the planning required to be on time with the help of public transportation becomes more than meticulous – it becomes tiring, and yet, there is no assurance that you will reach on time. So, what do you do? Simple – use the Transit App. This public transit (travel) companion in the form of a real-time public transit data aggregator and provider, is a blessing to millions app users.

FAQs

You will need to provide us one source for updated transit system route info for each location, as this is a strategic partnership between you (product owner) and the local government.
The final product shall be delivered and launched in 11-12 weeks time.
We have currently considered The above estimate considers: 1 API source only. Each additional location or region requiring separate API would have to be sequentially integrated and updated in the database.
For live location tracking and route navigation, internet connectivity would be required. Same for booking a cab. The only information accessible in offline mode would be transit route information.
This completely depends on number of languages to be supported. Each new language would require 20-30 hours of effort per platform.
