GOAL

To help the citizens of Utah be aware of the the Prop 1 legislation and what it would do for the public transportation in each of the Utah counties.  The app needed to help WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff engage with and educate each community of the changes and expansions of the local public transportation systems.  More information on Prop 1 can be found at http://www.prop1utah.com

CHALLENGES

In order for the app launch to be aligned with the campaign timeline and voting date we needed to build both native apps, iOS and Android, in two months.

To release information to each community quickly and in an organized manner we needed to display all current projects on one map and simultaneously allow access to the specifics of each project. This would require:
-Layering : a geographical-map layer and informational layer
-Multiple platform development : ability to share information over all major social platforms

SOLUTION

Using the tool CartoDB for enhanced mapping features, we deployed a responsive application that provides the community with real-time information. This gave Parsons Brinkerhoff the ability to engage with each community and gain support.

Features include:
-Access to a customized, interactive map
-Ability to search by project type (e.g. highway projects vs. bus routes)
-List of proposed transportation projects
-Project timelines and service schedules
-Integration with all major social media platforms for maximum exposure
-Public review writing ability to receive feedback on all projects

RESULTS

The Prop 1 legislation was voted on and passed in the majority of Utah counties.
