Abstract: Mobile devices have larger impact in our daily life. The proposed project is concerned with ticketing and identification of the passenger in the public transport service. As seen in various metropolitan cities like Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore there are various issues and problems related to severe malfunction and security. There are various problems related to public transport like confusion and misunderstanding between the passengers regarding fares, facing the severe problem of traffic jam, having severe security problems in public transport due anti social elements. This proposed project aims to develop a user friendly, interactive automated ticketing system which will deduct the passengerís fare according to the distance travelled as well as detect the passengerís identification. This is only possible by use of Near Field Communication (NFC) cards.
