Cookie Consent by nventive - Mobile Application Case Study - RTC Nomade

A way to connect people, in real-time, to a transportation network in real time

The assignment : Developing a hybrid mobile application – RTC Nomade – which displays, in real time, anticipated times for bus service based on users’ location and route selected.

The Réseau de transport de la Capitale (RTC, Quebec City’s public transit authority) wanted to improve user services by developing a tool to improve Quebec City commuting via bus or car-sharing services.


In order to meet this objective, nventive was given the mandate to create the RTC’s Nomade hybrid mobile application, which gave users real-time data of bus route times according to their position or a user-specified itinerary. By using hybrid app development technology, the RTC’s Nomade mobile site is also available for iOS and Android devices. This sophisticated platform not only includes geolocation of the users, but also connects to the RTC service, enabling real-time geolocation of buses and their arrival times according to the user’s location.

In the second phase, through the application, the users were able to access Communauto’s real-time car-sharing car services. Users can now look up the location of cars in Quebec City and easily book one for a short trip.
