Jungle Bus Community
Before it was a company, Jungle Bus was a non-profit (French association). Its team consisted of OpenStreetMap and public transport enthusiasts.
The objective: enable small local teams to improve the quality of public transport data in their city.
The team conducted two sorts of actions:
- develop and improve tools related to public transport in OpenStreetMap
- help local communities to map their local bus networks
You can still find these enthusiasts on the transport mailing list(fr).
- The Jungle Bus mobile app is the first open source tool produced by the team. Available on Android devices in multiple languages, it provides a simple and effective way for anyone to position and describe bus stops on the ground.
