Team's idea in one sentence

The only travel utility app in Nepal that lets you find public transport routes, discover new places and hire/book vehicles for long-distance journeys

Problem solved by the application

User might not know the local transport route to a particular place. GhumGham will help these users by recommending them public transport. User won’t have to ask people or their relatives when they don’t know which bus or tempo or micro bus to take to go to other places. It also helps user to find shortest or fastest or cheapest options. It helps the user to know new routes and also can be a platform to be updated on such new routes and new transportation rates. The Transportation Authority keeps on updating the cost of travelling based on the fuel prices that are revised every 10 days. This can be an opportunity for the transport owners/ conductors to cheat ravellers. So , the app will keep such price updated.
