Bus provides eco-friendly, cheap, convenient, time-effective means of transportation. Bus lack regularization and management, due to which they increased the burden on public transportation system. Unusual and unexpected conditions on the roads affect the smooth operation of the bus system and the movement of vehicles. Problems faced by passengers such as traffic congestion, unexpected delays of buses, unorganised bus dispatching from depots takes place as a result of which passengers have to suffer a lot and they inevitably have to wait for arrival of buses. In present time, everyone is in hurry to reach their destination. In this situation, waiting for the buses in queue is not reliable. People who completely rely on the bus transportation, their major concern is to know the real time location of the bus, the time it will take to reach their bus stop, the information about the driver and the security. This information helps people in making better travelling decisions. This RFID-Based Bus Management System is useful, accurate, secure and flexible. In this Global Positioning System (GPS) and Radio Frequency Identification Tags (RFID) is used for obtaining the location of bus and information about passengers and driver. The paper aims at developing a real-time RFID-Based Bus Management System which focuses on providing convenience and safety to the passengers. The system will be working as an integrated function of RFID and GPS which will maintain the detailed information about passengers and bus. The main objective of this system is to develop flexible, user friendly and secure bus management system that caters the needs of passengers.
