Rugby World Cup Journey Planner

Summary:

An award winning online journey planner, built using HTML, CSS and JavaScript, getting live transport data by pulling data in from 3rd party databases and news feeds.

Before the 2015 Rugby World Cup, Steer Davies Gleave were charged with creating the journey planner that would help fans and spectators get to the match venues. This site was a massive success, with over 500,000 people using it throughout the tournament.

I was a  developer during the build of the journey planner but was also put in charge of implementing Google Analytics and monitoring the traffic on the website. Upon launch I was placed in charge of monitoring traffic through the website and maintenance. This journey planner then went on to win an award called the “Excellence in Travel Information and Marketing Award”.
