As a followup to the recent launch of OpenTourNY.com, the responsive website designed for New York City's premier sightseeing bus tour company, Avatar New York added real-time bus location capabilities. With the addition of this functionality to the mobile website, tourists will be able to view the closest buses en-route, in real-time, on their mobile devices, including phones and tablets.
We built the platform using light-weight, robust technologies including: Drupal, Twitter Bootstrap, LeafletJS, and various web service API's. LeafletJS gave us the flexibility and low-overhead needed to provide high-performance, real-time mobile-friendly mapping capabilities, while Drupal gave our client the ability to easily manage bus routes and stops. Hosted on our reliable high-performance cloud infrastructure, the site easily scales to meet peak demand.
We're excited to have developed this unique mobile mapping platform for OpenTourNY.com. It's the first NYC siteseeing bus tour company to provide this value-added service online, and we are thrilled to have the oportunity to partner with a forwarding thinking company such as OpenTourNY.com.
