This project is based on ticketing and identification of the passenger in the public transport. In the metropolitan city like Mumbai, Kolkata we have a severe malfunction of public transport and various security problems. Firstly, there is a lot of confusion between the passengers regarding fares which lead to corruption, Secondly due to mismanagement of public transport the passengers faces the problem of traffic jam, thirdly nowadays we have severe security problems in public transport due anti- social elements. This project suggest a user friendly automated ticketing system which will automatically deduct the passenger’s fare according to the distance travelled as well as detect the passenger’s identification. This could be only possible by use of NFC tickets. This project basically deals with the identification and ticketing of the passengers sitting in the bus. Near Field Communication is a wireless technology which allows transmitting data between two devices. Automated and accurate accounting of bus transport can be used to provide useful estimates of the fare of travelling from one bus stop to another as well as the crowd density can be measured inside the bus, but in case of India measuring crowd density is of no use.
