From Trip Planners to Ecommerce: A Cutting Edge New Site for Ben Franklin Transit

Ben Franklin Transit (BFT) has been successful in building a great transit system for the Kennewick, Richland, Pasco, West Richland, Prosser, and Benton City, and Franklin and Benton Counties, Washington. With vast experience working with clients in the transit industry, Americaneagle.com was the ideal partner to design and developed a new, responsive site on the idev platform, for BFT.

The new site boasts the following features:

- Agendas & Minutes
- Quick Links
- News tools powering Rider Alerts, Services and Event announcements
- Document Library
- Members
- FAQs
- Form Builder
- Banners
- Slideshow

The new site also makes use of the following custom tools:

Trip Planner

Powered by Google Transit, the trip planner allows users to enter start/end addresses, dates and times and receive a transit plan through Google.

Driving Calculator

The driving calculator allows users to enter select data and estimate how much they will spend on driving costs.

Custom Ecommerce Functionality

The site also makes use of a fairly customized version of the idev eCommerce system, edited to have a unique "product" catalog, focusing on allowing customers to purchase Monthly Passes, 10-ride Tickets, and Vanpool payments.
