The use of bus in traveling is a large growing business in the world. Hence, bus reservation system deals with maintenance records of each passenger who had reserved a seat for a journey. Moreover, the ticketing system includes maintenance of schedule, fare and details of each bus traveling. This paper is a web-based application that will manage the scheduling of buses in all bus terminals of a transport company and also analyses the basic needs of passengers and design requirements of the transfer algorithm, and influence factors for effective running. This software developed can be used by any transport company as it wasn’t designed for a particular bus station/company. The scheduling of buses which was the major addition to the bus booking application was implemented using round robin for proper bus assignment in a way that improves operational efficiency. The system thus designed will provide a scenario for the customer/passengers and the bus company to attain a win-win situation. It is an adaption of the speed-up technique. This aim is achieved through the use of object-oriented methodology.
