Estimated arrival times are handy tools, but they can also prove a waste of precious time

Im not sure how long itll take before the transport providers are able to use LTAs resources, or if itll make that much of a difference to commuters. But I do hope it helps.

Commuters should be given accurate arrival information from a journeys start. So they can make informed decisions as to whether or not they should take a cab instead of a bus. Not wait 25 minutes before arriving at an answer. 

A staff writer at Fairfax Business Media, Melissa Chua loves observing how technology penetrates the deepest corners of everyday life. She is a regular metropolitan dweller who, like most urbanites, feels lost without her staple of gadgets.
