A bus shuttle tracking platform for their students to better utilize the Drexel bus system
Currently, Drexel students face many issues when it comes to accessing and
using the shuttle system on a day-to-day basis. As a team we have been able to identify three major issues the student body is facing regarding the current Drexel shuttle system:

- Students have no way of knowing exactly if/when the next shuttle is to arrive at a given bus stop, especially during rush hour traffic 
- Students may not be aware of the various routes/stops both in the University City and Center City areas.
- Due to construction stops being changed to temporary locations, students are often unaware of these changes.

The project aims to provide an interactive bus tracking map system that will display accurate currently operating bus locations and ETA at each stops along their route. We want to develop a solution to the problems at hand faced by students taking the Drexel shuttles daily, mainly being exact bus arrival time, available bus stops, and any updates to route changes.
