With the introduction of Amazon Alexa, I decided to build my first skill. It gives you real time schedules of the Viennese public transport. So in a nutshell you could ask in German: “Alexa, wann fährt die nächste Linie 1 vom Rathausplatz?” which basically means “Alexa, tell me when the next line 1 is driving from Rathausplatz”. Alexa then gives you real time information for both directions of that line and stop.
