This paper proposes and implements a solution for the navigation difficulty and enhancing the rail transportation in a simple way by combining Wireless Communication and GPS Technology by developing a GPS Based Real Time Personal Destination Predictor. In this method by sending SMS (Short Message Service) and Voice Call to the registered passenger’s mobile phone, we alert the passenger about his destination at the specified time before reaching the destination. If the user sends the PNR (Passenger’s Name Record) number obviously the server responds with a SMS to the mobile phone of the particular ticket received user. Once the request is responded, the GPS (Global Positioning System) which is the train will locate the live position of the train as latitude and longitude value which will be transferred by the wireless communication to the server and the server will response the location from the Google Maps and intimate the passenger before the specified time of the arrival of the destination station of the passenger, which can be known from the PNR details of the passenger, through SMS and Voice Call. Even the person waiting for the passenger in the destination can avail this facility from his mobile phone by registering with the passenger’s PNR number.
