Sharing economy is prevailing. The network of cars and shared bicycles is convenient for people to travel. We investigate the issue of value-added service based on crowdsourcing for campus shuttles. We can provide diverse services between users by solving matching problems. The service concludes positioning and location services, requesting designating. The efficient incentive mechanisms make the shuttle bus transportation parcel convenient. We use KNN algorithm to establish KD tree to index different parcels nodes. In our app demo, we show how the application execute and how to improve the user experience who involve the orders.
