These three must compete with each other to reach their destinations as each has an advantage and disadvantage over the other. Players are be given clues and tips on their smart phones tied to a fact about their mode of mobility and the history of urban development of Albuquerque. These clues are set up like a scavenger hunt where in order to reach their destination they must collect, contribute or take action using the information they receive from the mobile communication system.
