HI,

You can start by Creating Client/Server based app where the server will send the current position of all the buses and Android Application will fetch the information and display it to the phone to help the buses tracking the position.

In case of requirement being the different than the above the same Client/Server architecture can be used and there would be a small change in the logic.

Let me know if your requirement is specific and other than the above.
Hope the suggestion helps you

Hi JKumar

What do you mean by by creating client/server based app where the server will send the current position of all the buses and Android Application will fetch the information and display it to the phone to help the buses tracking the position?

How do i extract the data from the bus website?

Thank you.

Hi,

I meant for the post is that you have to have a server or the website owner must provides a type of webservice from where you can access the bus location data else it is not possible to track down specific vehicles.

You must have a central point(a server) from where the app can retrieve data.Else it would become independent application for a single vehicle.

Let me know your app's specific requirement to come to a better conclusion.
Hope the suggestion helps you

Hi JKumar,

Do you have msn or email, perhaps we can talk there? As there is really no project specifications, but i would like to create an application similar to this android app. http://www.androlib.com/android.application.sg-uandroid-sgbustiming-jCpB.aspx
