Hold Your iPhone Up and It Points the Way to a Bus Stop
Departures NYC uses augmented reality to point the way to the nearest bus stop
Buses in New York City have often gotten the short shrift. They lack the beautiful iconography of the subway system, and if the latter system looks like spaghetti to newcomers, then the bus system looks like ramen noodles. Bus stops, in particular, are hard to find for a newcomer. But an app called Departures NYC uses augmented reality to elegantly disentangle the situation, exposing tourists and lifelong New Yorkers alike to new transit options and informing them of approaching buses.
