The project presents a seat locator based on availability of seats in Mass rapid transportations. Nowadays, most people use public vehicle instead of personal car due to the rising of gasoline prices and traffic jams. Public company has been developing the system for displaying the position of the passenger vehicle for convenience of customers. However, those systems only indicate the position of the vehicle but not show the availability of seats in the vehicle. Customers will waste time waiting for the next passenger vehicle and cannot manage the time for travel or activities correctly. If customers know both of the position of the passenger vehicle and vacancy of seats, they can use the time to other activities before the passenger vehicle arrives and plan their travel better.
