Abstract : The bus bunching problem explains one of the most common problems faced by the individuals in major cities who are travelling by bus for their daily commute. We often come across situations where we wait for a bus for a longer duration and buses won't turn up and suddenly we can see a bunch of same numbered busses coming together. Due to this uneven pattern in bus arrivals, most of the people tend to board a bus which is heavily crowded and later they may find a bus following the same route carrying very few passengers. In this scenario, we see that the buses are unevenly distributed with passengers. Our proposal is to solve this bunching problem by providing an Android application to the passengers. The application keeps the passengers updated of all the buses coming via their current location with the estimated arrival time and count of passengers in each bus. The android application takes in data from the server and provides information of the bus and helps in a hassle-free transit.
