Bangkok Bus Route Planning API

Almost a million people commute by buses every day in Bangkok Metropolitan Area. However, many applications informing the bus transit system have many limitations, especially the route planning solution supporting bus transits and walking. This article introduces a route planning API for Bangkok Mass Transit networks. The API includes the BMTA bus database and a shortest path algorithm with bus transits and walking consideration. The experimental results show that the API takes only a few MB of memory and under 0.025s of processing time for 10,000 nodes. Including in an Android application, the application's response times are under 4 seconds, which is acceptable for user experience, and performs as much as 3.62 times better than official Android application from BMTA.
