useThe Connective Corridor iPhone Application “Use” launched May 1 and is helping students and members of the community better plan their bus travel. The result of a collaborative project between the iSchool, VPA and the Office of Community Engagement and Economic Development, the new iPhone app uses GPS technology to track the current location of CENTRO buses on the Connective Corridor and anticipate arrival times at all stops along the route.

Developed by Jennifer Hamilton, VPA assistant professor, and Keisuke Inoue, a Ph.D. candidate in the iSchool, the app shows the precise location of buses graphically on a map, while listing all stops locations on another screen. Future enhancements to the app could include listings of cultural events at venues along the Corridor, information on the architectural heritage of Syracuse, the ability to connect with other riders and integration with other popular social media platforms.

“Use” is free and available now for iPhone users through Apple’s iTunes store.
