In recent years, several kinds of wireless network have been widely deployed. In this work, we focus on the e-bus-system for movements of buses. Passengers can get the bus information through the intelligent bus stop when they are waiting for the bus. In today’s environment of Taiwan, the transportation information is provided through some specific Mobile network operators. In this case, it costs a huge expenditure every month for the charge of data transmission. Therefore, we propose a new network system with Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) and Super Wi-Fi to replace the mobile network operator. Furthermore, when the catastrophe happened, the proposed system can also change to be used for the rescues. The implementation of the system architecture, the application of DMR and super WiFi in the proposed system, and the operation scenario are described in this paper.
