I work with four teammates on CarFreeAtoZ, the Washington region’s first fully multimodal trip planning and comparison tool. Developed as part of Arlington County Commuter Services’ Transit Tech Initiative, CarFreeAtoZ makes it easy to adapt smart transportation choices to daily life.
The tool utilizes open transportation data standards and technologies, including: The OpenTripPlanner multimodal routing engine, OpenStreetMap and GTFS Transit data feeds.
Commissioned in `13, the project is ongoing with a planned Commute Manager for employers and mobile app to launch in the coming year.
I’m the designer and cartographer on the project team and was first contracted in August 2013 to prototype transitive.js – an on-the-go web-based schematic mapping software built by the Conveyal team in D3. Visit Transitive Github.
I was brought on staff in 2014 and focus on user testing, UX, prototyping, front-end development and visual design of the public facing web and mobile application. Working with a variety of testing and design methods, we are continuously iterating on the project.
