Personalized Trip Planner for Seniors - GetGoing

In order to make it easier to plan a trip, the GetGoing system gives seniors transportation information in a way that is usable and understandable. It is accessed through a phone number, provides information about bus schedules, driving, biking and more at a pace that is easier to understand. GetGoing can be paused so that the information can be written down. The system is being personalized so that preferences, such as driving vs taking the bus, are remembered and do not have to be entered at each call. This year the system will be modified to adapt to the way that the user speaks to make its output more like that of the user and thus more understandable. References to monuments will also be added so that the user can express a destination in the way they normally would, such as "my son's house" or "where the Isalys used to be".
