"While moving around in a city using public transportation (PT), the information about this service is created through dynamic interaction in subtle and complex ways, but it is usually not available or visible to users. A proposal to share and visualize this information can help them to make better decisions. This thesis argues that integrating networking functionalities to a transit application can make the service more reliable for the users and therefore enhance their trust. Under this premise, the main intention is to promote co-operation amongst users of PT in San José, Costa Rica, providing a visual interface whose signifiers and visual cues stimulate reciprocity and the exchange of valuable information, known forms of social capital."
