Abstract

Transportation becomes very difficult in cities like Mumbai. The public transports, especially BUSES are developing around the globe. Such public transports reduce the usage of personal vehicles so reducing fuel consumption and mollifying traffic congestion. The problem with BUSES is that the commuters DO NOT know the exact temporal arrangement of the arrival of BUSES at their stops. This leads to looking ahead to BUSES for 30-35 minutes because the commuters are not aware of what time exactly the BUS is to arrive. The approximate arrival time of BUSES is known but there could also be a delay in arrival thanks to traffic. Seeing that people started avoiding public transports and started victimization non-public vehicles, many applications were developed; but these applications were unable to mitigate the problems. Some applications provided only the arrival time and point in time of BUSES at their supply and destination. Some of them provided time-tables, but even they weren't correct as they failed to contemplate the delay thanks to unpredictable factors like – traffic, harsh weather situation, etc. The timetables were not timely updated leading to waiting for BUSES.
