Bus Tracker App - Help



New here so unsure if posting in correct area. I am currently wanting to design a Bus tracker application for my city, there has been one developed for the iPhone but not for BlackBerry.  All the bus tracking information is held online on the website, and advice would be muchly appreciated as I have been confusing myself with qa lot of stuff.  What would the best design and implementation approach be? I want to create this app so users can open the app click a stop and it tells the user which buses are next due at the stop. As I say any help would really be appreciated. Thank you!
