TourTrak Project Synopsis

TourTrak is the official app of the TD Bank Five Boro Bike Tour (TD 5BBT) and has been developed by RIT students in support of Bike NY and potential future organizations. With a successful deployment during last year's 5BBT on Android and iOS devices, TourTrak provides basic tour information to cycling participants while reporting their speed and location. This year's project team will develop new features to enhance the user experience. System efficiency and tour analytics will also be addressed.
