There has been an issue of overload passenger monitoring despite having stationed police at different locations for manual checkups. This has led to many injuries and death due to passengers being overloaded. This project aims at developing a system for monitoring and reporting excess passengers in public transport. It is based on global system for mobile communication (GSM) modem. This paper includes GSM modem, liquid crystal display (LCD) and buzzer alarm as output from microcontroller and passive infrared ray (PIR) sensor as input. If the number of passengers become above the required, the microcontroller send data’s to the GSM modem. GSM modem transmit the information to a database and then to the respective authority such as traffic police. The central database stores all information for the systemsuchas different traffic police stations with respective contact numbers, user name and message sent by the system. This helps to control excessive passenger, hence reduces the number of deaths and severe injuries.
