This paper proposes the real time microcontroller based passenger information system to improve the intelligent road transport system. This paper describes the transport network difficulties and solution to recover the problems of the road network via the real time passenger information system. The GPS and GPRS are integrated with the microcontroller; the GPS provides a GIS functionality to provide better and updated road network information to the passenger. The operations are separated as different units to manage the large system and to reduce the complexity.
