Widening the roads will help in shifting the traffic crowd from one point to the other, where as it may not effectively help in de-congesting the road traffic.
Moreover, infrastructure enhancements often have a time lag effect against the exponential rate that private vehicles population is growing, which nullifies the net results of the efforts.
In a fast growing economy, impaired Public Transport System have a detrimental effect.
Besides, 1000s of vehicle on the road heats up the ambient air & the collective result is really huge especially in metro cities. On top of it CO2, Dust, Noise pollution, non-recyclable solid wastes & chemicals from service stations all together makes it even worse!

eeZeeBUS is completely a standalone system which doesn't require any network / connected infrastructure. It utilizes the in-built FM Receiver available in Smartphones to get the GPS Live feeds from the VMU (Vehicle Mount Unit) installed on every Buses.
eeZeeBUS VMU receives the geographic co-ordinates to the accuracy of <5m and the data is broadcasted over an approved channel dedicate for the service. The beacons in short intervals are encoded with latitude, longitude and Bus ID and sent over the RDS / RBDS service with an adaptive coverage from 100m up to 15km in order to provide at least 30 min alert to the commuters ahead of the time of arrival to the nearest Bus shelter.
eeZeeBUS Mobile App (Offline app) installed on Smartphones tunes the in-built FM Radio receiver to get the GPS Live feeds from the Buses to indicate the live running status on offline route map, all in one touch there by making the Bus tracking very simple to less skilled users.
