CBD bus changes
Interactive web app to help residents find their way around the city following a once in a generation revamp of Sydney CBD's public transport system.
New bus timetables and routes in inner Sydney will operate from October 4, when sections of George Street will close to traffic.
Following indirect denial to access the proposed changes as a dataset I wrote a scraper utility to collect and structure the data in a MySQL database. The middleware was written in PHP, while Google Maps JS API and jQuery was used on the front-end.
Delivering the project several weeks ahead of the changes and with support from the topic editor in the form of ongoing coverage, we gained great traction on social media and the app reached audiences far and wide across Sydney.

Please note the demo has been rewritten using nodejs and postgresql. You can read about the process in detail.
