CMU Unveils App To Help You Find Your Bus

Thanks to a new iPhone application, Tiramisu, developed at Carnegie Mellon University, riders will no longer need to fret.

Tiramisu, an Italian word meaning, “pick me up,” is a user-friendly application that uses a rider’s iPhone to signal the location and occupancy level of the Port Authority of Allegheny County buses in real time, tracking arrival and departure times for each bus.

The new app was developed by researchers in the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Accessible Public Transportation (RERC-APT), supported in part by CMU’s Traffic21 initiative. The free application is already available for downloading at the iTunes AppStore.
