Erin Rocks! Vote for her!
Finding out when the bus is coming through the use of a smart phone app will likely encourage even more people to ride the bus.
such a great idea!
What a great idea!
I have a class with Erin, she should win. That would be nice.
Great story. It’s finally happening.
Lexi Combs ROCKS!
Definitely a worthy idea. Great story
Good application of already proven technology. Recommend also building into the smart phone apps a structured “trip request” system to solicit rider input on when/where bus trips would have been taken had a bus been available. Merge this with existing ridership data to see if route changes might be warranted. All very straightforward for the right development team. Good luck and let us know if you need any help!
All of Stifel Nicolaus is voting for you!
What a great idea, That’s a winner.
Lexi has always been a brilliant young woman, and there appears to be no end to her talent.
Hey Tom! We are a big fan of using social media and smart technology to get a greater outreach. A smart phone application is a brilliant idea and a great way to organize without wasting paper. Good suggestion!
So proud of my advanced reporting students – good work! Great ideas here for boosting bus ridership, especially in university towns where many residents are heavy users of social media and smart phones.
Fantastic. Well done!
Good job we arevoting for you
Just wanted to thank everyone for their votes. We appreciate it so much! Keep your fingers crossed for us!
Sounds like a great idea!
we need this in Newport county. we all take the bus, and never know if we have missed it or not! the driving age is 17 here. more young people would use the bus system if they could rely on it more.
we need this in Newport county. we never know if we have missed the bus! more people would opt for public transportation with this tracking system.
Great ideas. It makes riding that much more fun. Congrats.
Wonderful idea! A perfect example of young and creative minds at Ole Miss making the world a better place to live in!
