Abstract:

Incidents of some foreigner Our Lady of Fatima University students in Valenzuela Campus experienced getting lost as they travelled in going to and from the university are common. Strangers in Valenzuela City, they had to ask for directions and the fares during commuting to and from school. Thus, the proponents developed an application titled “E-Jeep NN: An Android E-Jeep Guide App with GPS and Open Trip Planner API for the New Normal” in communication with the various transportation sectors which has provided important information and formulas related to the Public Utility Jeepneys (PUJ). The E-Jeep NN aims to assist passengers to easily circumnavigate selected areas via jeepneys by enabling the accessibility of fare matrix through assessed standar d fares from starting point to destination, online map, self-distancing sensor, temperature reader, alcohol dispenser and E-payment. Respondents include 38 commuters in Valenzuela, and 5 IT experts. Modified Waterfall model is the Software Development Life Cycle used in the development. Blackbox Testing [8] will be used to test the system. The proponents used 5-point Likert Scale [7] for the analysis of the data. Overall, the application gained a total mean of 4.18 with an interpretation of Very Acceptable.
