METRO U-Pass App
At the time, students were required to bring physical documentation containing their schedule and number of units with them to the Associated Students office in order to be considered for a discounted Metro Pass. As this was not ideal, the Associated Students office chose to find a more efficient solution. They needed a relatively simple way to find out if students met the unit requirements for the discounted pass without the physical documentation. We created Metro-U Pass app to solve this minor complication.
We wrote a Laravel application which determines if students meet the unit requirements they need in order to qualify for the Metro U-Pass. With Metro-U, the only information required of the student is his or her university email address. This application was able to save both students and the Associated Students office both time and stress.
