dc.description.abstractOver the years, many means of cashless payments for goods and services have been implemented in Ghana. Although these systems claim diversity given the vast number of services that can be paid for on their respective platforms, they lack an avenue for the payment of transportation. This project attempts to fill this gap by developing a means of paying for transportation in a cashless fashion. In this project, technology such as NFC, QR codes and smartphones is employed to implement a cashless payment solution for transportation that will be a handy tool and asset to the average Ghanaian. At the end of this project, a thoroughly tested cross-platform mobile application along with a web-based application was created. The mobile application enables a public transport commuter to pay transport fares in a cashless manner via QR codes and NFC. It also allows a vehicle owner to monitor transactions made by his/her vehicle. The web-based application, on the other hand, enables a system status administrator to monitor the system and a transport credit retailer to sell transport credits.en_US
