What was the challenge_

When OnniBus started, the company was selling its bus tickets via a desktop website. Being a disruptive coach operator among the traditional inter-city bus services, OnniBus wanted to move beyond the website and make it even easier for customers to get a bus ticket.

How did we solve the challenge_

A convenient mobile booking app with seat allocation and a secure payment option would help OnniBus fortify its position as a transportation disruptor.

Mobile applications are an effective way to drive additional traffic and generate more revenue from offered services. With an intuitive route-finding feature and customizable ticket preferences, OnniBus could streamline ticket buying for its customers.

Simple Booking

A quick and easy way to view travel options and purchase tickets.

In-App Tickets

After purchase, users can show their boarding pass in the app. Ticket confirmation doesn't require an internet connection.

What was the scope of the project_

OnniBus approached us with a clear idea for the product — a mobile booking app for bus services. Our team brainstormed on the designs and functionalities, shaping the app so that it would meet the market need confirmed by OnniBus during idea validation.

After release, we provided six-month maintenance, fixing bugs and supporting the infrastructure to withhold the surge in demand for the company’s services.

What was the business outcome_

A native mobile booking app for iOS and Android with a simple user interface and enjoyable UX. The app has highly customizable ticket options available for customers. Dynamic pricing lets OnniBus modify ticket prices for every route and ensure an optimal cost-benefit ratio.

OnniBus has over 100,000 app downloads on Android. 30% of all company transactions are now coming through the app.
