Abstract: Public buses has been used by passengers for ages. It is one of the easiest and most convenient public transport. Even though the buses nowadays are equipped with the latest technologies, passengers still have to wait long hours for the bus. Moreover, passengers are impatient while they are waiting in bus stop because they are not able to know exactly how long to wait and where the next coming bus is. The main purpose of this project is to develop a real time bus tracking system to enhance current bus service system and reduce the workload of bus management team. Global Positioning System (GPS) is the main technology implemented behind the system. A GPS receiver is used to track on real time bus coordination by continuously receiving the position data which are latitude and longitude values from GPS satellite, then send the position data back to main server and server process the raw position data into real time information for users. This system is implemented on an Android App so that passengers are able to view the information through smartphone devices. Methodology applied in this project is prototype development model. The system developed in this project is not modules independently, all modules have to integrate become a working system. Therefore, prototype is developed and use for system evaluations, testing and enhancements. The users can get flexibility of planning travel using the app, to decide on which bus to take or when to catch the bus. The waiting time of the user can be reduced. Simple mode of communication is the key feature of the Bus Tracking system. After all modules integration, the system is able to provide a more accurate bus arrival time and to reduce workload performed by bus management team.
