Overview

We propose that U of A renovates its SafeRide system. The current SafeRide system requires that the student calls the line or even reserves a ride in advance through a phone call. This is an outdated system compared to other more competitive transportation services. It would therefore be more efficient and user friendly if they were to create an app that would show a GPS location of your driver or nearby drivers. Furthermore it could allow the drivers to see nearby requests and maybe pickup students on the way to their destination if they have extra space. This way students could check their position in the queue or the location of their driver in real time which would improve the overall SafeRide experience.
