Transportation@100%: Innovation 4
The projects presented in the ten innovations areas are all designed to address barriers to vital services. Action teams should review all projects and prioritize those that have the best chance of addressing the barriers identified in the 100% New Mexico countywide survey. Your collaborative and result-focused local work is nothing less than heroic.
Project 1: The “plain language for existing websites” project
In some transit systems, thoughtful professionals spend a great deal of time and effort trying to design perfect transit timetables with intuitive time listings, easy-to-read maps and other features, making it much easier to figure out how to catch a bus and get where you need to go. Others literally describe routes in paragraph form without any maps, or use confusing terms like “outbound” and “inbound” that are very much relative depending on where you are and where you’re going. Your mission is to figure out whether your transit system is taking this opportunity to simply and efficiently explain what they do on their own website, on printed schedules or (bonus points) on an app.
