How to use zophop’s Live Trips and fence

In a previous post we introduced Live Trips which enables users to see buses and trains move in real time on the map and also gives estimated time of arrival to their stops, as shown below :

To enable users to check live trips around them we have introduced the Fence feature. Fence does exactly what the name suggests – a fence is drawn around your current location and this lets you see only those trips which are live around you –

So instead of all the live trips all over the country you can see only those around you. Clicking on anyone of them will lead you to the corresponding real-time information –

Do you see those small arrows on the right hand bottom corner –
