These applications exist to ease out common existing problems, such as finding the right transportation for travelling in a particular area. The traveller may consider several factors before choosing the transportation for the long journey, such as date and departure time, ticket prices and also the time taken to reach the destination. In this project, a smartphone application called â€˜EasyGoâ€™ is proposed. â€˜EasyGoâ€™ is an application that helps travellers to search for available bus, train or airplane tickets, according to their preference. The Android Studio platform is used to develop the application and required communication with the respective databases.
