ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT: The need for a more efficient transit system has led transit agencies across the country to implement Automatic Vehicle Location systems. This enables them to observe, collect, and analyse location information about a commuter vehicle in real time and transmit this information to the transit management centre and passengers. This information gives the ability to make better and more informed decisions while also providing quicker response to emergencies. The benefits to the passengers mean better on time performance and less waiting time at bus stops. This paper deals with the implementation of cost effective and intelligent solution “Global Positioning System (GPS) Based Public Transit Tracking System” which will provide current location of the BUS and also send messages to the registered passengers/Users when bus reached at specific stoppage. GPS Based Public Transit Tracking System collects real time GPS data from android mobile of the driver and sends it to the server. The server takes decision to inform the registered user via short messaging service about the current location of the Bus/Vehicle. This application is easy to deploy and provide effective management tool for optimal utilization of present resources so that user can use public transport rather than private vehicles.
