Notification is one of the most important communication features that should exist on smartphone’s applications. The implementation of the push notification system may increase the interaction between users and the usage of Vehicle Sharing’s services. Vehicle Sharing application is an Android-based application that is being studied in our experiment. The goal is to create a safe platform for vehicle sharing as a part of an intelligent transportation system. Therefore, it is necessary to implement an efficient push notification system to enhance the user experience. This paper describes the implementation and performance evaluation of several push notification services, i.e., Google Cloud Messaging (GCM), IMF Push Bluemix, and Telegram API. Stress tests with variation of concurrent request were conducted to evaluate the implementation. The result shows that the GCM service outperform others with minimum messages received of 95,09%. It is followed by the IMF Push services with 85,44% messages received and subsequently the Telegram API with 52,50% messages received. The performance evaluation was conducted by collecting and analyzing the latency, jitter, packet loss and throughput of each push services through three scenarios. The result shows that the GCM service performs better as a more reliable cloud-based push notification service on our Vehicle Sharing application with the mean latency of 209,65 ms, jitter of 107,62 ms, packet loss of 0%, and throughput of 8478,89 bit/s.
