TRANSPORT 2.0 in Murcia
Are you one of the 100 million twitter users?
Do you use public transportation?
If you knew when the next bus was coming, or how long it would take to get to your destination, would you use it more? The fashionable way to communicate today reaches over 100 million users.
Twitter’s blue bird is used in more than 193 countries and every day more and more users join this online community, which produces more than 250 million tweets per day.
On Twitter, anyone can read, write and share messages of up to 140 characters. Is it possible to know when the next bus is coming through twitter? Can buses tweet their position?
The Buses used in Murcia are beginning to actively tweet their location. The Public Transport Authority of the region of Murcia has launched the project TWEET:BUS with the goal of promoting the use of public transportation. With this new and improved technological service, it allows any Murcian or tourist, access to any and all information about the transportation system from their house, or any mobile device which has internet access and a Twitter account.
TWEET:BUS is part of a long list of technological projects developed by EPT, which also highlights the actual usefulness of an increasing number of applications. “EPT Murcia” can be found in the AppStore, and the Android Market.
