Buenos Aires has a wide public transport network that includes more than 180 bus lines, 7 trains, 6 subway lines and 195 km of bicycle lanes that it offers to 4.5 million residents. and different alternative visitors when they travel. How I arrive (How I get there) is the official application developed for Capital federal (for the moment) that helps them move around the city in the most efficient way in public transport, automobile, bicycle, taxi or walking. It is available for Android and IOS and has more than 700,000 active users who do 1 million searches per week.
It integrates real-time information on subways, trains and buses so that users know when the next transport will arrive and also the different rates to provide more transparent information and allow residents and visitors to make better decisions. The objectives for 2019 are to include predictions for all bus lines, currently only available for those who are already sensorized, to include the services of the Metropolitan Area and to open the code of the application to the community. In doing so, our goal is to promote replication in other cities, save resources, and improve it through civic collaboration, strengthen our services, make our government more transparent
