In our first year of running the studio, we found a studio space located right at the corner of Cambie St. and Water St.—across the iconic steam clock in Gastown. Commuting to and from work from outside the downtown area, it was often needed to check multiple bus schedules to make sure we caught the best ride to our destination. We found this as an opportunity to offer a solution that was not available at the time.
We began recording our use cases and scenarios for our every commute. This helped build the framework for the project and highlight the main objectives we wanted to focus on. The primary issue we wanted to address was the ability to personalize a list of bus routes and be able to quickly check all their arrival times in a matter seconds. Some features we focused on included the ability to set a timer, a real time GPS tracker of the bus location, and options to set up personal routes.
