Teen Tackles Transportation and Triumphs
At OneSeventeen Media, we always love a great story of teenage triumph with technology, and Lexington, Massachusetts’s Danny Moraff does not disappoint. As an ambitious, 15-year-old transportation enthusiast, Moraff spent 100 hours of his free time mapping Lexington’s public transportation system and coding his data for integration with Google Transit.
Moraff’s incredible service puts Lexington’s modest public transportation system far ahead of many larger cities only beginning to consider their strategy for utilizing Google Transit. You can see an example of his work in the Google Transit screen shot above. Not only is Moraff an impressive young man because of his tech-know-how, but he’s also provided an incredible public service to the people of Lexington. Hats off to Moraff, and I’d venture to guess this is not the last we’ll be hearing of him! (Thanks to Ypulse for sharing Moraff’s story!)
