dc.description.abstract Public transit is a very important tool in Ghana for those looking to ease their commutes and also reduce car dependence. Due to the high reliance from the public, the need for information about the public system is very significant to those patronizing the service. This report presents MyRide system -an intelligent transit information system that uses the internet, mobile technology, GPS satellites and crowd sourcing. Its objective is to facilitate intra-city transportation in Ghana by providing real time information about buses. The information is provided via channels such as mobile devices, the web and SMS. Users of MyRide are not only limited to bus riders, but can also be employed by bus drivers and the bus management. It is aimed to be used by transit agencies that have a structured system of relaying their services to the commuters. The report discusses user requirements specification, system design and architecture, implementation of the system, and finally, testing and results. en_US
