It's a cheap, fast, and fun way to navigate around town. But riding in a new city - or even an unfamiliar route in your own city - gets me nervous. I find myself checking and rechecking my phone to make sure I haven't missed my stop. I never have a problem navigating with a car but somehow it's remarkably harder with transit. Why is this?
Along with a friend
, we sought out to build a better transit navigation experience. Our hypothesis was that by focusing on real-time location and step-by-step guidance, riding transit can be as easy as hailing a Lyft. We used Framer X to build the prototype, Cinema 4D to model the bus, and Mapbox as our mapping provider.
