Proposed Model For An Integrated Management Information System In Inter-State Road Transport Booking Process
Technology and modern science has brought the current world into the digital time and this has greatly improved
the efficiency as well as simplicity of our daily activities. In the field of transportation informatics for instance, lots of
technology devices have been developed by various researchers and scientist to assuage the problem of passenger
information management. However, most of our transportation system are not as such effective and still suffers inefficiency
as passengers in our terminals still need to queue up in this technology age when trying to purchase travelling tickets from
transport operator, thereby resulting to time wastage. Additionally, some services like chartered services, holiday trip
services and courier services are not included in the existing research works. Hence, booking and reservation model that will
comprise the aforementioned left out services will bring great ease and simplicity to the society. This research is aimed at
developing booking and reservation model (IPMIS) using hybrid approach that will comprise the aforementioned services.
Dijkstra algorithm and Demand Responsive Transport (DRT) technique will be integrated together to develop the model
after which it will be implemented on mobile cross platform of Android, iOS and Windows.
