The SNAP service has existed in some form on the WPI campus since the 1981. In its twenty-eight-year existence it has evolved from a walking patrol service to a walking escort, and then finally to a van service for the students of WPI. The service as it exists today is an on call van service that will transport students to residential locations within a mile of campus. The service has been of great benefit to many of the students who live off campus. Due to the service's large ridership it was deemed necessary to perform an in-depth analysis of the service to identify areas upon which the service can be improved.
