Santa Fe Bus 2012: 

Streamlining the Santa Fe Bus System Using Mobile Applications and Other Advanced Technologies


This Interactive Qualifying Project dealt with improving the effectiveness of the Santa Fe Trails public bus system in Santa Fe, NM. Using on-board cameras, bus ridership data, traffic data, and survey response of bus system riders, our team was able to develop recommendations for bus system improvements such as rerouting several bus lines, and changing the bus schedules to create better connection times. To further effectiveness of the system we designed a mobile application, incorporating a Google Transit feed, to help passengers find buses and pay for their trips. It is our hope that these recommendations help the bus system become more convenient for riders of the bus system and encourage more people to ride the bus. This Project is intended to help Santa Fe Trails make the public transportation system modernized and user friendly.
