Incredible city transportation utilizing a safe, comfortable, stable, and efficient smart transportation system with modern arrangements has become a necessity. Currently, the transit busses still run on the open road in mixed traffic, which means the arrival times cannot be anticipated correctly. Furthermore, using the Department of Transportation’s Passenger Information System (PIS) and GPS effectively and efficiently provides immediate information about the position of each bus. The PIS monitoring system transmits the accompanying information using the GSM method and continuously provides arrival times to passengers through their smartphones. The PIS screen can be monitored at each bus stop, as well as by the Department of Transportation, to confirm the arrival times for each bus. This is useful for bus users and operators and encourages private vehicle users to switch to mass transit.
