The Brock Bus Project

Working recently with the amazing folks at Brock University’s Library Makerspace, I had the opportunity to develop and design a web app that displays approaching and departing busses at Brock University. St. Catharines transit provides the data through an API, and we simply style it to match the Brock University brand.

The web app itself updates every 10 seconds, so students always know when their busses are arriving. Once completed, it was loved so much that it was integrated on a few different screens on campus. We are currently working on getting a permanent display so that students in Thistle complex can see when their next bus is approaching without having to go out into the cold of a Canadian winter.

What a great opportunity to practice my HTML, Javascript, CSS, and PHP. A big thank you to the Brock University Library Makerspace.
