Bandwagon Wins Ford Urban Commuter Challenge

Winners of the Ford Urban Commuter Challenge were revealed yesterday – and we’re one of them! Bandwagon answered the challenge to create commuter-focused software to help commuters get around the world’s largest city, Shanghai.

For Shanghai, Bandwagon developed a mobile web application and hub-view that quickly enables commuters at crowded transportation hubs to see nearby passengers and departing rides. Our mobile web app is lighter and faster to use than our native iPhone and Android applications. The mobile web app also reduces the need for physical transportation solutions — enabling Shanghai to more rapidly deploy Bandwagon’s sharing networks at its most crowded transportation centers.

But you don’t need to be in Shanghai to check it out what we cooked up: type in your phone’s browser, anywhere in the world – now, no download needed!
