Re-thinking Ticketing
A prototype for purchasing train tickets, this project explores a different way to buy train tickets. The idea is very simple, offer a simple way for residents and visitors to quickly and efficiently purchase tickets. Combine way finding and ticket purchasing to aid city travelers in navigating a public transportation system. This project came about after years of using BART in San Francisco. Watching tourists struggle to find their destination and my own frustration with the process prompted me to reconsider the experience. Using a custom built touch screen along with public API’s from Google Maps and BART this prototype tries to create a more empathetic ticket buying experience.
