Most college and office goers in India use the public buses for daily commuting. The bus network caters to the need of thousands who find it an affordable means of transport. However, the absence of real-time updates in the system poses some very serious problems during the exit period. Large cohorts leave the workplace at one time, leading to over-crowding, chaos and accidents at local bus stops. To address this issue, we have designed an RFID based system that alerts the commuter at periodic intervals as his desired bus approaches the stop. This paper documents the preliminaries, concept validation stage, and the development of a scaled-down prototype. The objective is to notify commuters of the approach of their desired bus (on request) by SMS.
