Lack of Attention in Physical
​Well-Being of Bus Drivers

Bus drivers have it tough — they are faced with long hours on the road,
split shifts that have a 3 to 5-hour gap, and responsibility in commuters’ lives.
Unfortunately, only a few transit institutions provide a gym for their employees. It is almost impossible for bus drivers to take care of their physical well-being.

Owning a car is a dream for many, but are youths fully aware of its cost? And how can I develop youths' interest in the high cost of auto insurance rates?

Choosing Toronto neighbourhood as the main topic, I delved deeper on Toronto auto insurance rates as a starting point. The goal was to raise awareness to the group of people that are least exposed to the issue but who desired car ownership the most — youths.

THE CHALLENGE

How can we build a lifelong habit to exercise for bus drivers without exerting too much of their energy?

PACT ANALYSIS

People
  • Bus drivers who seek to improve their health.
  • Users are often sociable but are tired because their sedentary occupation demands repetitive leg and arm movements.
Activities
  • Drives for a living and works minimum 40 hours/week.
  • Gets a split shifts or not depends on seniority.
  • Users do circle check before starting their shift, and have small breaks (15 minutes) for every 2 hours or every turnaround.
Contexts
  • Would occur before the user starts their shift and at the end of their shifts. 

  • This would happen outdoors (i.e. minor/major bus stops, main stations) so users would be exposed to extreme weather.

Technologies
  • Familiar with GPS and hands-free.

  • Health-aware drivers may have wearables that can be integrated into the app.

USER PERSONAS

IDEATION

Initial assumptions and ideas to tackle assumed issues surrounding bus drivers. I also listed possible questions to ask for the interview.

Critique from my Interactivity professor Danielle Alderman after I pitched in my idea. I had to make sure to ask what apps are the target user most familiar with and go from there.

FLOWCHART & SCREEN FLOWS

From pen and paper to Balsamiq and finally to Sketch, I visualized the main screens based on the users’ needs with the goal of establishing a lifelong habit of exercising in mind.

Quick Walkthrough

Stefano is completely unfamiliar with how Steeyr works but wants to access the app quickly to get his exercises started.

Timely Reminders

Stefano has his 15-minute break and wants to use his break by exercising, but he usually gets distracted and spends his entire break on social media group chats. Steeyr's notification feature reminds Stefano what's most important — his health.

KEY TAKEAWAY

Great insights can come from anyone
The design process made me realize that non-designer friends or even family members could offer great insights as well. For future considerations, I would really like to spend time on refining the InVision prototype based on my peers' feedback and do user testing with the real users and people I interviewed.
