Hello all,

I just wanted to talk to you about a community project that is really growing fast and will become something huge soon! We really need the help of the xda community to make it available everywhere. So please take the time to read, forgive my english knowledge and typos and contact me to have more infos.

iRail.be is an attempt to make transportation time schedules easily available for anyone. We are doing this by creating an Application Programming Interface. This interface is implemented in PHP and can be reused by various of other projects.

Our main site consists of a very easy mobile website to look up time schedules using our own API.

I think that we all have smartphones (iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, WebOS, Bada) to get real time information.

One topic that should interest everyone is public transport, because while waiting for a train, subway, bus, you have your phone in your hand and you wonder “When will my vehicle arrive?”

Sometimes, you have some electronic panels on the station, but most of the time, these panels does not provide info you need or you are not at the station.

You can find more information here.

Want something on the XDA Portal? Send us a tip!
