Abstract :

At present in public transportation system we use paper tickets which are printed by a small machine with a key pad. This system needs a man power and we don’t know the details of the passengers using the public transport. In our proposed system automatic ticketing uses a smart card (digital ticket). This system has smart card system in all the buses. Passenger can swipe the smart card while getting inside the bus as well as getting down from the bus. The smart card would be provided to the passengers. It would be recharged and the bus fare would be detected from the amount for each travel of the passenger. RFID technology also provides for greater security in the system. The ticketing systems using RFID can be merged to solve the above mentioned problems. This paper actually suggests a much more public friendly, automated system of ticketing with the use of RFID based tickets.
