Travelr was developed at CalHacks – 2014 UC Berkeley’s Hackathon with the intention to win the Uber challenge. My team and I created a mobile application that provides the best transportation for the user needs. The four forms of transportation displayed to the user are Uber, Train, Walking, Car, and Bicycling.
How to use Travelr:
The user begins at the home screen for the application. The user is able to enter the destination’s location in a text field that is similar to google map’s text field. The user selects Take Me There! The applications transitions into a screen that allows the user to select if they are feeling cost effective or time effective for their transportation. Once a preference is selected, Travelr will calculate the travel time and cost to the user’s destination from their current destination by Uber, Train, Walking, CAR, and Bicycling. The best form of transportation based on the user’s prior preference selection will be highlighted to the user. If the user wishes to travel by Uber, then the user is able to call Uber by selecting the Uber option.
