Abstract:

Jeepneys have been around in the Philippines for several years and have served as the most common way of transportation, yet technological improvement is still on its way to the jeepneys. Electronic payment is now implemented on buses and trains, but not on jeepneys due to its design and way of payment that makes it challenging for implementation the electronic payment. With the new design of the jeepney, the proponents were able to make an electronic payment specific for jeepneys. This system used the RFID tagging technology coupled with databases. The Hardware consists of an Arduino that connects all of the components like RFID reader and trip meter. A local computer was also used for handling incoming and outgoing data on database. The software consist WAMP server. The system was able to track the passenger’s travel distance and to use RFID tags in storing the passenger’s information from the database. The system was able to collect payments seamlessly on jeepneys.
