Description

Panamas public transportation system faces numerous difficulties nowadays. The current system does not offer a reliable service to the customers and many actors discuss what could be the possible solution. This project focuses on improving the information available to users and analyzing traffic patterns of Metrobus routes to propose possible solutions and improvements.

Main objective
  • Develop an official list of routes and its bus stops, and make them available to the public.
  • Determine the performance of Metrobus routes.
  • Identify congestion problems in traffic and propose solutions on Metrobus routes.
Deliverables
  • Tool for determining traffic patterns on Metrobus routes using its GPS data.
