Online reservation system for public transport

How feasible is it to design an online system that allows consumers a one-stop location for buying tickets for different public transport systems i.e. intercity buses/trains etc. Could such a system be made cash-less?

    I think is providing this service but it is not that extensive as your idea suggests. Can someone explain cash-less system?

    @Sarwat Fatima Cash less systems are payment systems that allow a customer to pay the cash electronically
    1) By tapping the card/band/etc with embedded chip( which stores the customer's credit information i.e Bank account information) on the card scanner.
    2)By creating account online (with account/credit information provided and authorized) and then paying cash by just entering online credentials in the portal which automatically deduct the required cash.

    It is very feasible to implement such system by considering the points below
    -> All public transport systems should have an API and/or online information which provides with current transport times and available passenger seats.
    -> It can be made very feasible by making all public transport companies register online and making a large database/etc which records schedules.
    -> The consumer end should contact the transport system(i.e the online database/records) to check the available routes and seats.
    -> Finally the consumer can pay the dues using the cash less system(mentioned in above post)
    ->The consumer can install the Application on the android /IOS device/PC/Mac or use Website and buy the ticket.
