  • Android Mobile Application Development in Public Transport


    Android Development

    One of the biggest revolutions in the transport industry has nothing to do with wheels, fuel or the ability to move people. The innovation that has subtly changed the way we plan and move about a city has come from a rather unlikely source, the smartphone! It has drastically changed the way we live, even the way we travel.

    Public/Private participation

    This brings us to an increasing amount of public and private participation in urban transport. This includes android mobile application development. Given the widespread usage of android apps, it is natural that the bulk of development is focused on android apps. Transit apps are developed by both governmental and non-governmental bodies. While government bodies develop apps that are centred around public utilities, private firms are engaged in apps that centre around their own services. Other apps include the dispersal of information like maps.

    Multiple options

    Today the urban citizen uses her phone to virtually do everything –– from planning her route, calling the cab, finding train timings to entertaining herself during her ride. As a result android mobile application development is centred around these various facilities. Apart from the very precise Google maps, you have android apps like train route maps, taxi, bus service maps and ticketing apps. Another offshoot are entertainment apps like books, music and games based apps that are often accessed by users while traveling.

    Updated information

    An important aspect for those involved in android development is the updating of information. Many of these apps are based on up-to-date information mechanism. Even route maps often have to be updated whenever a change occurs. So flexibility in app development is crucial.


    Android mobile application development is important for both public and commercial use. While it is used as an important tool for information dispersal, many companies have seen the commercial benefits of developing transit-based apps. These are used for ticketing, contact and tracking. For instance, airline apps can offer ticketing. Many cab companies offer tracking on their apps. It allows the customer to track the cab as it reaches the pick-up point. Ultimately, all these apps are designed to improve user experience and thereby increase sales.
