Method and System for Block Based Transportation Ticketing

Fare evasion, public transportation efficiency, and public security have created major concerns in the transportation industry around the world. A reduction in transit use can be related to transit agencies' faults, long waits at transfer points, and boarding concerns due to crowding. Crowding at transit occurs due to the low efficiency of security check and transportation operations, over and above the massive number of passengers. Therefore, public transportation system needs to improve the efficiency and make the costs economical.

Public transport security is yet another major concern around the globe, posing a major potential threat for terrorists. Therefore, extra security screening of passengers and their baggage is required for appropriate security measures. However, this has numerous shortcomings associated overpowering the benefits.

There exists a need for a public transportation system that manages and enhances public transportation system that reduces subway operation cost, prevents fare evasion, etc. and manages and identifies a global recognized human identity.

Disclosed is a method and system for enhancing transportation management by block based transportation ticketing.

In accordance with the method and system, the system handles the registration of a prospective human followed by supplying multiple forms of document identity (for example: biometric identifying, wherein the registration information is stored in DB of certified identities). Then, the system processes passenger information at each public station, wherein the passenger information includes but is not limited to identity and location. The system verifies and validates the identities of the passengers by querying the DB of certified identities. Thereafter, system identifies passengers with bad history/credit and rejects the passenger.

As illustrated in Fig.1, in a scenario wherein based on passenger information, the passenger's identity is authorized and confirmed; a child-block chain is created and maintained for the passenger. Thereafter, the system creates a new-child block each time for tracking passengers at every single entry/exit level. On exiting the station by the passenger, the system creates a last block-chain, to be extracted and added to a parent-block chain. The blocks of the block chain record all transactional information, enabling all parent - block chains to be arranged sequentially as...
