巴巴在哪兒

香港人生活節奏急促,我們打算研發的「巴巴在哪兒」是一個創新的應用程式,提供小巴即時資訊以及預留座位的功能。我們的期望是節省人們等候交通工具的時間,令大家可以選擇一條最理想的路線。

巴巴在哪兒

靈感來源 What inspired us?

巴巴在哪兒唔知大家有冇試過,或者目睹身邊好多朋友搭車預唔啱時間,約咗人反而自己遲到?

又或者排咗好耐但係來一架滿載的小巴,結果白等一場?

我地現時未能明確咁知道小巴嘅位置以及座位嘅數目,​​​​​​​所以我地就想整一個App出嚟,依靠小巴司機手機上嘅GPS,以獲取小巴嘅實際位置,從而顯示出估算的等候時間,​​​​​​​並增設小巴留座嘅功能(每個用戶開一個帳號,登入後就可以按鍵選擇留座),結合小巴上同留座嘅人數,讓乘客自己選擇是否等候乘坐。


Have you ever hanged out with your friends, but ended up with yourself being late just because of the unexpected delays of minibuses?

Or maybe wasted your time on waiting for a minibus, which ended up to be full when it arrived?

Currently, we still cannot ascertain where exactly are the minibuses and the number of seats left on each minibus. Therefore, came to our inspiration, we came up with the idea of developing an app to help solve this problem.

The app includes the function of knowing the real-time location and capacity of the minibuses. We could achieve this by receiving GPS signals provided by the drivers' phones. , Besides, it allows passengers to reserve seats on different routes. Each of the users of the app has to create an account.  If they wish to reserve seats, they could simply press the "Reserve" button. Together with the number of passengers on the minibus, we can provide the estimated waiting time to be able to get on a minibus. 


我們如何由0到1開始 How can we actually do it?

巴巴在哪兒​​​​​​​

  1. 我地會嘗試做一份問卷,派發俾身邊嘅人或者公眾,問下佢地程式同介面最需要有咩元素,同埋點樣先可以最方便到乘客。
  2. 然後,我地會改進個介面嘅設計(例如係令乘客唔需要喺個App裏面跳嚟跳去先搵到自己要嘅資料),務求做到方便使用。所以我地會同專業人士商討一下設計版面嘅問題。
  3. 因為整呢個App需要寫一個程式,整理各種數據,無論係小巴司機提供嘅位置,甚至係將數據顯示於App上面亦需要相關嘅技術,因此我地會有學寫程式嘅課程,希望能夠掌握到基本程式碼嘅運用

大家將會分成兩組,一組負責設計介面,另一組負責寫App。


  1. We will design a survey or questionnaire. We will ask them about the most important elements which have to be included in this kind of app.
  2. Then, we will modify and improve our design of the app. We have to ensure that it is user-friendly and is convenient to use.  For example, we do not want information of the same aspect to be scattering on different parts. Therefore, we will find professionals and discuss with them our app interface.
  3. Since it is a must for us to make and write a program in developing an app, we will attend some courses or classes related to programming, so that we could apply the programming language on handling and presenting data in our app.

We will work in two groups: One of the groups is responsible for designing the app interface, while the another is responsible for writing programs.


我們遇到的挑戰 What challenges are we facing?

巴巴在哪兒由於我地喺寫App方面欠缺相關的經驗同技術,因此在設計介面和程式碼時可能會面對一些困難以及問題,例如要利用 Google Map 嘅定位技術,或者係如何喺介面上顯示相關嘅資訊。

若果要取得小巴即時的資訊,包括位置以及車上人數,必須先取得小巴公司嘅同意,所以要說服小巴公司同我們合作,對於我地嚟講,係一大挑戰。

喺安裝同實行此呢個系統時,我地面對最大嘅問題係唔知可以透過咩途徑令其他人知道小巴當時嘅乘客人數,我地暫時有以下兩種方法:

  • 司機數人:要依靠小巴司機於App上報數           

        或

  • 運用感應器:自動報數,但種類、放置位置、金錢上亦係有待解決嘅問題


Since we lack experience in writing programs and developing an app, we may find it difficult in designing the interface and handling the programming codes. For example, we may need to use Google Map for the locations of the minibuses. We may need to know how can we actually display the Map in our app.

Besides, for getting the location and number of passengers on minibuses, we must have to gain permission from the minibus company. Therefore, persuading the company to cooperate with us is also an obstacle for us. 

In implementing this system, the greatest problem we are facing now is that we are not  sure about the method we should use to find out the number of passengers on a minibus. We have come up with two suggestions:

  • The drivers count the number of passengers:Need to rely on the drivers for reporting the number of passengers.                                                                  

        OR

  • Using sensors:It can automatically transmit data to the app. However, there are concerns about the kinds of sensors, where to place the sensors, and the cost of the sensors. These problems have to be solved later.


需要的資源及人力 What resources / manpower do we need?

巴巴在哪兒由於我地冇正式學過點樣去寫App,所以希望可以有識寫App嘅人可以教導或者協助我地,令我地可以達成目標。

另外,我地亦需要資金去報寫App嘅課程,或者請專業嘅導師來上堂。若果我地決定用感應器嚟偵測上落小巴嘅人數,我地都需要資金用嚟購買感應器


Since we have not learnt how to handle programming and develop an app before, therefore, we hope that we could get assistance from professionals on app-writing.

Also, we will need funds for applying for app-writing courses or hiring professionals to teach us about the programming skills. If we decided to use sensors for detecting the number of passengers on a minibus, we will need money on buying the sensors as well.


我們是誰 Who are we?

我地係幾個嚟自聖保羅書院,志同道合、追尋各自夢想而相遇於此嘅同學。

We are a group of wild dreamers who are students of St. Paul's College.

其他人的評論

有趣有趣,但似乎最大難處係點樣同小巴公司傾店。
如果成到事,真係好多人受惠
Anonymous 可行

多謝您嘅意見及支持。的確,游說小巴公司同我地合作係一大難題,喺嚟緊嘅幾個月入面,我地會盡快寫好程式碼及盡可能優化設計。將個App最好嘅一面呈現喺小巴公司面前,希望佢地可以給予位置同人數等等嘅資料。
這是一個很好的嘗試,可以參考台灣的 Taxigo,這個初創運用 LINE 或 Facebook Messenger 來做用戶界面,減輕開發成本及用戶下載程式的門檻,對於你們起動個計劃能有一定幫助。

更重要是紅色小巴在非繁忙時間經常遊街等客,乘車時間反而比起坐巴士還久,若你們能成功研發,讓司機們更掌握乘客需求,其實也是雙贏局面。
Himphen Hui 可行

非常感謝您嘅意見。我地會參考更多同類型嘅程式再作改進,至於第二點,我地正正係考慮到類近嘅問題,所以想先綠巴,再做紅巴。
可以留位係個好功能,唔使等咁耐,希望可以盡快用
Ben Lew 可行

十分感謝您嘅支持。我地呢個App之所以創新,就係因為有小巴留座呢個功能,若果成功研發嘅話,我地亦呢個功能都希望會幫助到更多嘅人。
正阿喂!!!
希望你地真係做到!!!!!!
難度最高既地方似乎係要同小巴公司傾掂數!?!?
我建議你地同左綠van公司傾先,紅van公司似乎難搞好多
Judy Yeung 可行

十分感謝您嘅意見。關於小巴公司嘅問題我地會再商討一下,然後係呢度更新最新嘅動向。
