Abstract

Public transport buses are used by all walks of life from one place to another. The latest development is the Government's efforts to stimulate public transport to provide the best facilities and services to the public. To fully utilize the bus service provided, a good bus management system is required. In Malaysia, real-time bus tracking is provided only by minority bus service providers that can be found mainly in West Malaysia but is still relatively new in eastern Malaysia. Most service providers only provide inaccurate scheduled in real time. Several Universities in Malaysia have successfully implemented real-time bus tracking systems. Real-time bus tracking systems are very common and widely implemented by many universities abroad. Each semester UNIMAS students have to pay their tuition fees which include transportation and health fees before they begin the semester. This means that by paying a fee, students can take UNIMAS buses provided by the university extensively during the semester. However, UNIMAS bus drivers do not always arrive on time. Students often get tired of waiting for bus stops for buses to arrive but are unable to get the latest bus status. This affects their decision whether to wait for the bus or to find alternatives such as Grab Car services so that they are not late for important events like their exams and classes. UNIMAS buses serve as public transport for students to classes or faculty from the College, whether staying outside or in colleges within UNIMAS. The project aims to build a websites system where users can track buses, bus routes on the day, estimated bus times to arrive at bus stops and get updates on UNIMAS bus information. The tracking system for UNIMAS buses because students do not have a real platform for detecting UNIMAS buses, and now using manual systems, management sites or MPPs need to post every xiii semester on the Facebook for the bus schedule but the timetable of bus are fixed as everyday student face problem with delaying bus so long, bus not coming on the time that already put in the time table .Daily compliance issues relate to students being tired using UNIMAS buses and instead of paying for an Uber or Grab car to get to class even at short distances and high costs while UNIMAS bus fees are included in the student fees each semester.
