This past weekend I participated in the National Day of Civic Hacking. It was a time for the programmers across the US to help out our cities and communities by building new and innovative apps. I was lucky enough to work with two of my friends on this project: Geoffrey Shoultz and Fred Johnson.
Our app was called “Where’s the bus?” As the name would imply, it’s a service that lets you find out when the bus is arriving at your bus stop. It does a few other things too like telling you all the times for a stop and setting up reminders. We created the whole app using Google Script and Twilio for our texting service. Try it yourself. Text 0603 to 706-225-2970 and you’ll get the time for the Miller Road/Moon Road stop.
