Announcement Majority of the public transport supportive system is not user friendly. An ambiguity on the available state of the transport bus may lead to poor performance of the supportive mechanism. The advancement of technology enabled, to meet the requirements of the supportive mechanism. There has been an issue of overload passenger monitoring despite having stationed police at different locations for manual checkups. This paper aims at developing a system for monitoring and reporting excess passengers in public transport. This paper includes GSM modem, liquid crystal display (LCD) and buzzer alarm as output from Arduino and passive infrared ray (PIR) sensor as input. If the number of passengers become above the required, the Arduino send data to the GSM modem. GSM modem transmit the information to a database and then to the respective authority such as traffic police. The central database stores all information for the system such as different traffic police stations with respective contact numbers, user name and message sent by the system. This helps to control excessive passenger, hence reduces the number of deaths and severe injuries. The public transit usage can be improved if real time information of the bus such as the seating availability, upcoming station information using digital display as well as audio system provided with easier access.
