Abstract

This research aims (1) to analyze and design the application of matching companions by location-based services via mobile devices, (2) to develop the application of matching companions by location-based services via mobile devices, (3) to evaluate the satisfaction of passengers using the application of matching companion by location-based services via mobile device. Method for conducting research according to the System Development Life Cycle--SDLC, divided into five steps. The samples of this research were 30 public car users, using the accidental sampling approach, who travelled via Soi Pontisan Khlonghok-Future Park Rangsit, Khlonghok subdistrict, Klong Luang District, Pathumthani province. The research instruments consisted of the application of matching companions by location-based services via mobile and the evaluation form for experts and users using the application. The results showed the following: (1) the structure of the application design showed that: the evaluation of difficulty and ease of using the application has a score of 4.20, indicating that the application is easy to use. (2) result development is a device that facilitates the matching of travel companions to help reduce costs and waiting time for the bus. (3) the sample was satisfied with the application of matching companion by location-based services via mobile device moderate level.
