Abstract Title

Golden Flashes Go (Home)!

Abstract

The purpose of this app is to streamline rides home for all out-of-state students. These students have struggled to find reliable transportation, flights, bus routes, or Uber/Lyft rides long enough. It becomes a hassle trying to locate peers from your home state with such a large number of people on campus and no efficient way of connecting with them. Bus routes are far too confusing when venturing to further states, with all the transfers and different routes, not to mention the wait times. Uber and Lyft are very effective for those looking to travel around Kent, but when going anywhere further, it becomes far too expensive. Our group will survey the student body, those who will be affected by this app, as well as different department heads, those who will help us implement and create this app in order to create the most impressive, practical, and cost effective app possible.
