Careem Bus: A Better Way to Ride
Careem Bus is an on-demand bus app based in Egypt. No more taxis or memorizing bus stops or schedules. Users can simplify their commute, errands, and outings with the tap of a button.
Plus, riding with Careem Bus is safer, easier, and more enjoyable than typical public transportation with AC, comfy seats, and a convenient mobile app.
In an effort to improve the user experience and provide better analytics in the backend, the apps needed to encompass the entire user experience, starting with the booking process and ending with intuitive payment integration.
Careem Bus began looking for a flexible app development team that could add new features and improve the Android app code quality while interfacing with multiple teams with different responsibilities.
To accomplish the project within a reasonable timeline, Blink22 assigned two dedicated app development teams to optimize the backend and update the native platforms.
The first team worked on adding new features, fixing bugs, and supporting the production team with ongoing updates. They built a dynamic dashboard that could accurately track and provide advanced analytics for an entire bus fleet.
The second team transitioned the Android side base code from Java to Kotlin to improve efficiency, speed, and code quality.
The Blink22 app development teams built robust web and mobile apps that could handle real-time bus booking and tracking and smoothly integrated these apps with Careem's already powerful platform.
Many versions were released to production, including fixes, enhancements, and new features in both the backend and Android and iOS mobile apps.
