Abstract -
Nowadays the public transportation system like the metro are well advanced. Passenger safety, convenience and the need to improve the performance of existing public transportation is driving demand for intelligent transportation system in the market. The paper we introduce, proposes a novel fare estimation technique using Automated Fare Collection (AFC) System and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) integrated together in public transport buses along with Automatic Vehicle Location System (AVLS) to easily locate the route and track the bus. The contactless smartcard –based end-to-end solution for fare collection and payment that we use here is uniquely designed with the demand of revenue services for modern transit operation in mind. The data from the Origin- Destination (O-D) matrix had been useful to implement the system, thus paving way to the advancement in the area of intelligent transport system.
