Recently the urban population growth and increase rapidly. Currently, more than half of the world’s population live in cities and projected that by the year of 2050 more than 2.5 billion will added to them mostly in Asia and Africa. This growth required efficient public transportation system such as buses where the users need sufficient and accurate information of the arrival time of the particular bus to particular station to enable them to plan their journey from and to their home. However, company provides bus schedule but unfortunately, the bus schedule is not that accurate for the users to follow. To address this issue, this paper aims to develop an IOT Arduino based a real time bus tracking and monitoring speed system using a GPS module, which functions informed the users the current location of the buses via the pre-installed Android Apps called Blynk. Blynk apps showed the user the estimated the buses distance and their arrival times to the station, which facilitated them in the process where they can monitor the buses locations across the world via internet connection. The developed system is capable to monitor the bus location, speed, estimated distance and time as well as provide real tome information to the bus company and to the passengers. The system performance is evaluated experimentally and showed excellent results indicating its ability for tracking and monitoring.
