Find My Train
October 2012 - Current

Developed iOS and Android applications to allow Phoenix light rail users to locate nearest station and see next train arrival time. The application also allows users to view a list and map of stations, and view schedule times for all stops for the current day. This application was kicked off at Phoenix Startup Weekend in 2012, and took second place. The team then participated in ASU Rapid Startup School and did customer development interviews with light rail riders in order to determine the marketability and optimal set of features for the application. This app is currently available in the iOS and Google Play app stores.
