Jiffy Rides

 

Project Baseline

To create an application for people to commute to their work place and back home together with others who are having a similar route by splitting out the cost instead of commuting alone and spending more.
The client is from USA, Kishore Kotapati who is famously known by his initials, KK



The Problem

KK disliked the act of commuting from one place to another and spending hours in the traffic congestion every single day. Commuting between 30-50 miles in the USA is normal but people will either have to commute with their personal vehicle or use the public transport. Purchasing a personal vehicle is very costly plus the daily expense for fuel costs, maintenance etc.

The second option is the public transport, yes, it is a cheaper option but there are some problems like: Fixed routes whereby a large number of commuters need to use a secondary commuting option such as walk for some miles, public transportation runs on a fixed a schedule whereby people need to make sure they are on time for the certain vehicle otherwise they might miss it.
