The Challenge
CoMute required a complex integration the GTFS (General Transit Feed Specification) data with the location of users. The public transportation data fetched from GTFS database had to be matched with continuously-fetched dynamic location data in real-time, and the social media was supposed to be built on top of the matched data.

Our thought process and identifications
CoMute was to initially launch for the Long Island Rail Road. CoMute should serve as a location based social network allowing users to post pics, chat, connect and share stories. Users would be able to access real-time train scheduling data, along with location data from fellow users. They should also be able to manage their friends, chat with others, edit their profile & receive notifications.
