Abstract: Unexpected delays or long traveling times lead often to people who get bored while using public transport. Whereas some might use their travel time for work or even enjoy the silence, there are still many people that would welcome an opportunity to use the spatio-temporal proximity to get to know others or meet with friends that are in the same train. This paper introduces a novel, smartphone based concept to bring people together while using or waiting for public transport. Based on location and personal preferences, suggestions can be made for getting in touch with nearby persons. We propose a recommendation system, which identifies the concrete public transport vehicle and compares the preferences with other users to create recommendations about people nearby who are also traveling in or waiting for a public transport vehicle.
