Each and every public transport bus in Israel equipped with a GPS component that detects and transmits the bus location at any given moment. This data sent every 20 seconds - so we could always know the approximate location of the bus.

The bus reports its location to servers of the Ministry of Transport. The server uses an algorithm that calculates the arrival time of the bus to the station, taking into account traffic jams, traffic lights, stops at stations, hazards way, statistics and more.

NetBus pulls the data from the Ministry of Transport servers and displaying it on a beautiful, easy and simple user interface. The data presented to the user on a map accompanied by the progress of the bus in real-time.
