The app would have multiple areas of focus: 1. MyTransit would utilize location based services to locate the nearest bus stop and provide the rider the quickest route information including bus location and wait times. Utilize mobile payments for those who dont have change , but also support electronic bus pass via 2d scanning or NFC . 2. MyHome - Plug in your address and this would feed you the latest reminders for events, your councilor contacts, Garbage/recycle day reminders. 3. MyShopping - provide the latest flyers and sales / coupons from shops in HRM. Sell advertisement space so shops can offer additional discounts 4. MyEntertainment. Utilize LBS services to find you the entertainment or a place to eat. Recommend locations based on user feed back etc. There are additional sub categories to offer but this is a start.
