My Bus Edinburgh is an open-sourced Android application. It was previously known as "Edinburgh Bus Tracker" but the name was changed shortly before the initial release.

My Bus Edinburgh allows users to check the next departures of bus services at most bus stops served by Lothian Buses. Users can save and maintain a list of favourite stops, view bus stops on an inbuilt Google Maps object and the user may change a number of preferences.

This project utilises the Edinburgh Bus Tracker service provided by the City of Edinburgh council. The project started as the author's BSc (Hons) Computer Science final year dissertation project at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh.

- Android 1.5 or above
- Data connection (WiFi, 3G, etc...)
- Google Maps installed
- For accurate location finding, it is recommended the device has GPS functionality

Released: August 17, 2010.
- Added possibility to backup and restore favourite bus stops from the Preferences section
- Function to sort the bus services by time (with the first to arrive being the first in the list). The default ordering by service name, can still be selected and will remain the default ordering
- Display of departure times has been rewritten to reflect a cleaner way of displaying bus times
- Fixed an issue, which prevented the app being displayed in the Android Market by QVGA devices (HTC Tattoo, HTC Wildfire, ...). The app is now compiled for Android 2.1 rather than 1.5, and now contains QVGA compatible graphics to support lower resolution devices. At the same time, higher resolution images were added to support WVGA
