BusBuzz is a location-based social music application for mobile use in the public buses of Istanbul. This application essentially creates a jukebox specific to each bus, where it allows BusBuzz users to discover and share music together as a shared experience. BusBuzz aims to improve bus rides by creating a fun and engaging social experience through music. It aggregates the users’ music preferences and creates a dynamic playlist. This playlist is like a jukebox, sensitive to user input and specific to each bus.
The project began as an academic case study at the MIT Mobile Experience Labs, but is now being developed and implemented in Turkey by The AVEA Innovation Labs - A Turkish Telecommunication High Tech company.
