New app for bus times广东中学生协助研发惠及大众的实时公交应用软件

Waiting for a bus can be very _______[annoy]. Often youve been at the bus stop_______half an hour, youre sweating (流汗) all over from the sun, and the bus still hasnt come._______, people in Zhongshan, Guangdong dont have to suffer this. Its all because_______a mobile app, Zhongshan Real-time Buses (中山实时公交). With the app, people can find out the exact (精确的) time a bus arrives and set an alarm (闹钟) to remind_______[them] to go to the stop in time.Five Senior 1 students at Zhongshan Overseas Chinese Secondary School helped make the app possible.

At first, the team just wanted to add or change bus lines to help make it easier for students at their school to take buses. But as they did research online, _______[give] out questionnaires at school and interviewed teachers, they realized that taking buses is not only a problem for students, but also for most of the people of Zhongshan.It occurred to (想到) us_______we could make something that benefits (有利于) all the people of Zhongshan, said Chen Guangjian, 16, the team leader.The students also found that changing bus lines costs a lot and affects (影响) too many peoples lives. So they thought_______making an app_______was popular and easy to use._______[get] technical support (技术支持), they turned to the local public transportation group company. They were surprised to find that the company_______[make] a similar app before but few people used it. “It didn’t fully consider people’s needs,” said 16-year-old Zhu Yue. “We didn’t make that mistake.”The team carried out three surveys by collecting questionnaires _______[complete] by about 600 people in shopping malls and bus stops. They analyzed (分析) the data (数据) and in January, provided a 5-page report to the company, _______[give] possible functions (功能) of the app.

The work took_______almost all of our spare time for four months, said Su Yinan, 16. The burning sun, peoples cold shoulders (冷漠) and the sea of data drove us crazy. _______[ Luck] we pulled through.

On Feb 25, Zhongshan Real-time Buses was born. It now covers over 100 bus lines in the city and has been downloaded more than 60,000 times. The project won the first place on the Fifth National High School Students Leadership Convention this summer.We are very happy that Zhongshan people are using the results of our efforts,” said Chen. “Students can also make a big _______ [different] to society.”
