The CatTracks website is somewhat hard to navigate. Finding which bus line you should take to get somewhere and when the bus will arrive is a lengthy process. This inspired us to make a more concise, simplified way to plan trips with CatTracks.
What it does
This website takes information about your trip and spits back all the possible buslines you could take.
How we built it
Using MLH's promo code for Domain.com, we obtained a free domain and hosted a static website through Google Cloud's Storage and Network APIs.
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We have made a tool that UC Merced students can use and will benefit from. Being able to host a website for free was pretty cool as well.
What we learned
What's next for CatTracks
In the future, CatTracks would ideally determine the fastest bus route out of the buslines you could take. Displaying travel time and implementing a map/other graphical feature would be nice as well.
