Future destinations.

What does transit planning look like in 2028? A futurecast to examine the impact of machine learning in a wildly automated future.

Remix is currently a web-hosted application for planning and scheduling public transit systems. With the impact of automation and data science, planners are likely to take on a new set of responsibilities by 2028. The goal of the futurecast is to assist Remix by predicting the future and then reverse- engineer that prediction to figure out the necessary products and services to be created to stay ahead of the curve.
Goals
Investigate the future of transit planning in 2028 by creating a new UI design and workflow for Remix customers. Address steps Remix could take to achieve that future.

Responsibilities
Everything: end-to-end research and visual design.
Timeline
3 weeks

A story from the not-so-distant future


I worked with Smokedship to create concept designs and a story to illustrate the functionality of the UI design as well as the inclusive user flow.
