Tell us what you think of the new VTA.org!1/29/2019 10:50 AM |
VTA has released a test, or beta, version of the redesigned VTA.org with a focus on the most-used transit features and content. In the software world, beta means the site is usable but is limited and still a work in progress.
We’re seeking your feedback to help ensure the new website becomes a valuable tool for users. Please try it out at beta.vta.org, and don’t forget to complete the short survey on the site!
The mobile-first and transit-first design you’ll see in the beta was based on user feedback and an in-depth analysis of web traffic. We invite you to try one or all of the following common tasks we’ve released in the beta:
- Get real-time arrivals
- Plan a trip
- Look up a schedule (we’re fixing some bugs with how these display, but take a sneak peek)
- Find fare information
- View system maps
- Find help articles at the bottom of Route Pages
If you’d like to stay involved, subscribe to updates as the beta site evolves.
User-Centered Redesign Strategy
As we’re following a user-centered design process, our decisions will continue to be focused on the needs of real users—like you!This beta site, the survey and usability testing in the coming months will help us make sure the site best meets those needs.
Our strategy is also data-driven. Questions, hypotheses, research, data gathering, and analysis of facts have helped us create the best design, content, and functionality. This strategy has helped us navigate through opinions and preferences to find the best design and functionality.
