Philippine Transit App Challenge is the first national transport app app development competition, where developers are invited to develop an app based on the data available from the Government transport sector. Those data are composed of regularly updated geographic location and service information for all buses, rail routes in Metro Manila and live feed of traffic incidents.
The developers are given 3 months development to develop their ideas and build the innovation solution for transportation challenge.
Last July 18, 2013, Philippine Transit App Challenge was held together with the Google Business Group Gensan and Soccsksargen Bloggers at GreenLeaf Hotel. Gensan based developer got together in this event to discuss the incoming Philippine Transit App Challenge Competition.
I was one of the lucky mentor discuss on how to use Google Maps API and OpenStreetMaps API, where developers can use this mapping tool for creating their transportation app.
