Abstract:
    With Hamari Sawari, Public Service Vehicles become more structured, commute information becomes more comprehensive and decisions for improvement are based on reliable data.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    More than a hundred countries including Pakistan lack public transit information, and the information that is available is very in-comprehensive. Public transit is the most common mode of transportation and creating new parallel modes in not viable for most such nations.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   The lower-middle class would benefit the most after the launch of the project. With time, increase in population, more congested city centers and climate change in the near future, every person that uses commute services to travel to go to places (especially work) will benefit from the project.
How will the solution works
    The most integral part is gathering data; which is done by collecting data from transit authorities and a mobile application that uses GPS services. The data is stored on the cloud in the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) format. This format is a globally accepted format for transit information and is being used by Google and World Bank. This data is then interpreted by open-sourced libraries and the information is displayed on a user mobile application.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    There are transit information mobile applications for more than 18,000 cities in 80 countries. Applications like Citymapper provide transit information but in limited countries. This project solves the problem of gathering information while taking less time than present solution providers.
