The Bronco Shuttle application has been re-launched with a new student-friendly look thanks to its primary developers, a group of student assistants in the Information Technology Mobile and Web Applications Department.
The online resource has a new display and the ability to pinpoint pick-up and drop-off times courtesy of more accurate tracking of the shuttles that help transport members of the campus community. Find the new app under “Maps & Transit” within the CPP Mobile App or at BroncoShuttle.com.
“When I’m going to take a shuttle, my main concern is whether I’m going to make it to class on time,” said Maximum Wilder-Smith, a second-year computer science student who was one of the student developers on the project. “So we were able to build into the app the ability to tell you how much time it will take to get from one stop to another.”
The front page of the app now includes a map. Viewing any or all routes on the map and the locations of its associated shuttles is as easy as the tap of one button.
Wilder-Smith, Kyo Kondo, Travis McGary and Gabriel Martinez comprise the group of student assistants that worked over the summer to develop the app under the supervision of Tim Raymond, Executive Director of Mobile and Web Applications and IT staff members Jinah Young, Evan Miller and Jonathan Tran.
“This is a good example of professional and career readiness,” Young said. “These students did almost all of the work. These kinds of hands-on experiences that give them this much responsibility really help prepare them for the real world.”
The Bronco Shuttle app will also be available through CPP Mobile app or at https://broncoshuttle.com/.
“This app is important to us, because we all live on campus,” McGary said of the group of student developers. “We basically gave it a complete overhaul and now it’s so much more simple to use. But we’re always looking to make it better, so we want feedback.”
There is a link on the front page of the app where users can submit feedback.
