Trek is a mobile app solution to the expensive price of traveling for college students during break.This app allows students to carpool with other students heading to the same city for break, for a much affordable price and an easier, less stressful experience.
A carpooling app that allows users to book or host rides.
Wheeli is targeting college students around the ages of 18 to 25 years old. They typically provide rides for students going home for break but also provide rides to locations close in-proximity to campus.
A ridesharing website that allows users to book or host rides.
Although Rdvouz is targeting anyone seeking a ride, its primarily used by people 25 years of age and older.
"I'd like to find an affordable way home for break and back once it has ended. Traditional forms of transportation are so expensive and inconveniencing."
"I'd like to offer rides home for break and back as it is a convenient way to make good money and help out students in need of affordable transportation."
Once users have applied the necessary filters and found the ideal ride, they simply click the ticket box containing brief information about the ride to view the details and book the trek.
Users will input their pickup address and drop off addresses for the departing and return trips. If users will be using the same addresses for both trips, they simply need to flip the switch to green. This was added to decrease typing.
Users will see the total price for the trek including the fees and taxes. If users click on the info icon, they’ll learn how the fees and taxes were calculated. The pickup and drop off for the departing and return trips are also present in case users made a mistake prior or would like to change the addresses.
Users will be able to access the trip map and itinerary once the Trek has been booked; however, the map won't show any updates until the day of the trip.
Empathize more with drivers. This project is too heavily focused on the passenger's experience and should also focus on the driver.
Design product exclusively for passenger's. This app tries to appease the needs of two different user groups. It would be more beneficial to make a seperate product for drivers.
Flesh-out roundtrip and one-way booking. I need to decide if rountrips are exclusive to users seeking a rountrip or if one-way trip users could book a departing trip or return trip from a roundtrip driver.
