Abstract [en]

In the current wave of economic instability, the world is witnessing significanteconomic progress in the sub-Saharan Africa. In this particular part of the worldamong the best performing developing economies, Ethiopia’s progress is con-sidered as an example for achievements in the region in last decade. The gov-ernment of Ethiopia believes in building huge infrastructures in the whole coun-try and especially in the economically vital geographies like the capital AddisAbaba. The project I have proposed aims to contribute to the smooth function-ing of the Addis Light Rail Transit after its launch. This bachelor’s thesis in-tends to design and develop an application based on the technology of web ser-vices for Internet and smart phone users. So the App updates data on the arrivalof a train on a particular station, in the case of unlikely delay the app informsthe users on new schedules. The application provides a functionality to searchfor available upcoming journeys and allows the customers to pay for the jour-ney from the device they are having on their hand. Finally, the project providesinsights on the usability of the implemented applications based on summativeevaluation technique.
