My moby is a multi-language app for smartphone that allows to plan the travels using the different transport modes (buses, train, ferry) in Yangon. Each transport system can be looked up to spot which transport mode can be used according to the geographical position of the users. Each public transport line is detailed both on a timetable and on the map, where all the stops are visualised as well as the departure and arrival time of each line.
The user can consult the app and discover which lines take and at which hour, how much is the waiting time before starting the trip and, finally, calculate the route to get to destination from the chosen origin.
Furthermore, My moby anonymously collects mobility data tracking people and vehicle trips (origin, destination, transport mode, route) and allow members of the community to assess the overall adequacy of the transport systems and to make informed decision about their own mobility behaviour. In detail, the users can visualise their mobility patterns as well as statistics about: how much time they spent travelling with the different transport modes, the origins and destinations of their travels, where they spend more time (home, office, etc.), etc. The personal information is available to each user.
