The Prototype: A Visual Conceptual Model for Students and Commuters on the KCRC West Rail Line





  • Students: An understanding of the relationships between distance and time on a public transport.
  • Commuters: A journey planner on the estimated time of arrivals.

(a) A Step-by-Step Guide to Making it Work

  1. Select a station from the 2 lines
  2. Click on “Let's Go!”
  3. Choose the time and date of travel
  4. Information of the results

(b) What More Needs to be Done

  1. Display the stations exactly the same as selected
  2. Adjust the information of results accordingly
  3. Distances between stations to be included in the information of results
  4. Fine tune on the user interface

The first screen is very effective for a student to select the starting point to the destination. I do expect to have a time indicator to show me the change of time against the stations being travelled. This is better indicated by the change in colour for the stations passed by. Then the "one screen" requirement is completely fulfilled.

For the second screen, it may be over complicated for a local railway journey. It would be appropriate if the application is for a flight to a foreign country because "24-hour" and "Date" features are useful in such a case. I like the animated arrow on top which you may include this in the first screen.

I agree with Maxi that the first screen is very well designed, but the second screen is a bit more involved and complicated.

It isn't very obvious which fields can be modified to get the end results.
