InterAksyon.com reports that the MRT Trackr, the Android-based app created by young Filipino developers Michie Ang and Ryan Escarez "aims to improve commuters' experience when riding Metro Manila's three main transit lines-the MRT, the LRT1, and the LRT2." The report pointed out that the MRT Trackr is "under open beta-testing" and has five main functions: Finding a Train Station, Riding a Train Station, Creating Reports, Information, and Leaderboard.

 

Ang, in an email interview with InterAksyon.com, explained, "Some people think the app doesn't make sense, because they think that to improve the MRT-3, LRT-1, LRT-2, you need to add more trains. But with the use of this app, commuters will be informed of the current situation in a train station. Basically, that is a big help already." Ang explained that the app would inform passengers right away if a train is delayed by technical dificulties or other factors.

 

Basically, according to the information posted on the MRT Trackr website, the app aims to to the following:

1. Help you find the nearest train station within your area
2. Provide you with your train itinerary
3. Notify you when you have arrived at the destination of your choice with voice alert notification
4. Provide you the estimated crowdedness in the train station of your choice
5. Provide up-to-date news and information that is relevant to the public
