The aim of Fair Fare was to provide better information for users of Irish public transport. It was to be the only application available where you can compare the prices and times of different possible journeys using Irish services e.g. Dublin Bus, Bus Éireann, Luas and Iarnród Éireann etc. The application aimed to give users a range of possible journeys they could take, in order to get to their desired destination. The user can then compare these potential routes and decide which one best suits their needs.
This application has two different views depending on the user role. The first role is the general ‘user’. Users are able to log into their account and view newly added content for Maths solutions. They can also add their own video solutions to problems as well as commenting on other videos. The second role is the ‘admin’ role. Admins are able to monitor user activity. They have permission to delete content from other users if some content is deemed to be irrelevant. Admins can also change user roles. This ability was originally to be completed strictly through the database but it was later implemented as an option in the admin dashboard.
The project owner believes that there is a real need in Ireland for more information regarding public travel. They also learned about the vast amount of free information that is provided by Google’s API’s and how they can be utilised in any project going forward. Also, they learned about how to deal with changing development and design requirements as a project evolves.
