Abstract: Hong Kong is a highly urbanized city with a very complicated public transport system. Local residents and tourists rely heavily on public transport for everyday travelling. To assist people in making better use of the public transport system, a multi-modal public transport query and guiding LBS system for mobile users is developed. This system can automatically determine the mobile device position with cellular network positioning technology, and with the user-defined destination, optimal traveling routes in terms of shortest travelling time and lowest fare are suggested. An overview of this system with emphasis on the system user interface, integration of GIS and mobile positioning technology are discussed in this paper.
