Describe your proposed solution – How does your approach build on or add to more traditional ways of dealing with problem?

In Arsinoe service, every municipality bus and university (EMU) bus which serves to the city will receive a number. Moreover, each bus will be assigned to a route and these routes will be shown on a map. 

 

The Arsinoe users, who are university students, people of Famagusta, and the tourists, will first be able to determine which bus they would like to take on their route, and track that bus while it is on move. 

 

This way,they will know exactly  when the bus will arrive to the bus stop. Thus, the waiting time will be reduced for each bus users and effectively manage their valuable times.
