Forward-thinking organizations have realized this, and are trying to make the transition, but it can be a daunting task to create an app from scratch. Guidebook makes it simple and inexpensive to go mobile.

    We are currently in contract negotiation with multiple offices at Duke to create an all-encompassing mobile campus solution.

    Potential internship and full-time opportunities in sales, customer service, and campus programming.

To accomplish those goals, TransLoc is developing new and better ways for transit agencies to break down these barriers and respond to their riders’ needs.

We've also provided critical operational data to Duke Parking and Transportation to improve the efficiency of the buses, meaning less frustrated riders.
