To ferry around all the many visitors expected for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games on top of the already the 12 million people living in the metropolitan area, good information about public transportation is an absolute requirement.

For that reason the Cidade Olímpica (Olympic City) created a challenge: which application is the best travel planner to use during the Olympic Games.
