DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AN ONLINE BUS TICKET RESERVATION SYSTEM (A CASE STUDY OF AKWA IBOM TRANSPORT COMPANY [AKTC])

ABSTRACT  

The study examines the design and implementation of an online bus ticket reservation system. The system solves the problem of inconveniencing passengers who may not be physically present at the bus terminal to buy a bus ticket at a particular time. The system was achieved using the PHP and MYSQL technologies.

CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION  

Bus Ticket Reservation System enables the bus company's customer to buy bus ticket online; this is an easy method which saves a lot of time, it will enable customers in their comfort zone, to search for available tickets and get their data easily without any prior experience with queuing at the counter. E-ticket is the easier and quickest way to take the bus. The online system is a new system because it hasn’t existed in Bus Company and even in AKTC. Currently, the staff at the bus ticket counter are using an internal system to sell tickets at the counter. Customers are unable to buy a bus ticket online at this moment and have to go to the counter to buy a bus ticket. Sometimes, customer needs to queue up a long queue to buy a bus ticket and ask for information. This brings a lot of inconvenience to the customers. With the Internet now routinely being used as a resource for Bus Ticket Reservation, customers can buy a bus ticket, make payments, and ask for information online easily. Furthermore, staff can sell bus tickets using Bus Ticket Reservation System after checking bus ticket availability for the customer and print the bus ticket to the customer that queue up at the counter.
