The paper based ticket system for collecting the bus fare has been found to be a source of major financial loss in India. It is difficult to assure the purchase of ticket by each and every passenger. Also, a paper ticket becomes useless to the passengers when the destination is reached. A large number of such tickets are wasted every day. This causes a tremendous increase in pollution due to the reckless felling of the trees for production of these tickets. Even the count of many unsold tickets per day is very high. In the era of technology, India must focus on inculcating an automated system for collecting bus fare. Hence, this paper proposes an automated card driven system for bus journeys in India. Different scenarios concerning the implementation of this system are discussed in this paper.
