BusSeat is a sophisticated system with extended features, serving as an aggregator for bus operators in Sri Lanka. Imagine a dedicated bus booking system developed for a single bus operator's company. Such a system would include essential features such as user management, bus management, route management, schedule management, and more. Similarly, BusSeat is designed to manage hundreds of bus operators, along with their agents and passengers, offering a comprehensive solution for the entire bus booking ecosystem

Phase 1 - UI/UX development and requirement gathering

We initiated the project by focusing on developing a high-fidelity UX/UI design using Figma. This stage involved close collaboration with the client to understand their vision and translate it into user-friendly designs. Our team meticulously gathered requirements to ensure that the platform would meet the needs of various user roles, including passengers, agents, and bus operators. This comprehensive design phase set the foundation for a seamless user experience.

Phase 2 - Web and mobile application development, role-specific apps, and admin dashboard

We developed the web application, followed by the mobile application, addressing the following features:

  • Secure logins for Admin, Operator, and Agent roles
  • Distinct mobile apps for Operator, and Agent roles
  • Comprehensive route and bus selection pane
  • Comprehensive seat selection pane
  • Booking confirmation and real-time notification
  • Operator management
  • Agent management
  • Bus crew/driver management
  • Bus management
  • Location management
  • Station management
  • Journey management
  • Schedule management
  • Booking management
  • Discounts
  • Cancellation policies
  • Booking cancellation and refund
  • Settlements
  • Wallets
  • Credits
  • Secure payment method
  • Report generation, including operator, journey, agent, route, payment instrument, and daily pickup reports.

Our team used Flutter for the mobile app and Bootstrap for the web interface to ensure consistency across different devices. We implemented a robust backend using Java and integrated NGINX for secure communication and data protection. A centralized admin dashboard was developed to empower administrators with the tools to manage bookings, monitor bus schedules, and analyze performance metrics.

Phase 3- Building a scalable platform, secure payment integration, and real-time notifications

Given the client's objective to accommodate a growing user base, we focused on building a scalable platform. We utilized PostgreSQL for robust data management and deployed the system on Linode to enhance performance and reliability. We integrated the secure payment gateway, Genie, which is an all-in-one payment acceptance solution that accepts payments from any card and any bank, enabling customers to have a wider reach. Genie supports payment methods including American Express, MasterCard, Visa, and eZ Cash. Additionally, we implemented real-time notifications via email and SMS.
