Abstract

Road transportation bookings have traditionally been done over the counter in transportation terminals but with the exponential growth of e-commerce, this has changed. This study focuses on automating the Road Transport Booking System to allow travellers (passengers) and employees to buy and sell tickets online. The study also discusses issues that consumers and administrators face, such as long wait times to book a trip, unsafe environments and more. The project investigates several implementation problems and makes suggestions about how to successfully incorporate an Online Road Transport Booking System. This web portal would aid future development of a fully integrated system that connects transportation company employees to consumers, employees to employees, employees to other types of transportation providers, employees to companies, and employees to government agencies. The development tools used in the development of this research are PHP, CSS, HTML, JavaScript, MYSQL database, and XAMPP server.
