The Cal Poly mobile app provides students, faculty, staff, and visitors of Cal Poly with information pertaining to the campus (such as information about admissions, campus life, campus news, etc.) This project extends the functionality of the Cal Poly app to provide information regarding campus transportation. In particular, this project provides 1. a live twitter feed with announcements about events that may affect the roads and parking spaces on campus 2. an ‘alternative transportation’ points of interest map illustrating the locations of zipcars and electric vehicles charging stations on campus and 3. an easy to use interface to reserve an available zipcar 4. parking lot locations specified in the existing map section of the app, along with the number of each parking space type. These additions to the Cal Poly app may help users save fuel, money, and time.
