Fargo Moorhead Bus Routes Android Application
MetadataShow full item record
Fargo and Moorhead have good public transportation provided by Metro Area Transit bus service. Google Maps Navigation, which provides public transportation routes and directions in several major cities, is not available in Fargo or Moorhead, so bus users have to either carry and use printed maps provided by MATBUS to determine the bus routes they need to take to reach their destination, or if they have a smartphone with internet connectivity, they can visit MATBUS website to view the maps on their device. This paper examines the inconveniences of both procedures like using a big printed map outside in Fargo winter, or panning across an approximately A0 sized PDF (actual dimensions are 30.67 inches width and 46.67 inches height) on the small screen of a smartphone and presents a tool for Android-based smartphone users to alleviate some of those inconveniences.
