In this paper, we present a GIS Based traveling information systems on a variety of transportation modes, Schedule status and transportation related information in the context of the available media of Bangladesh. The goal of this system is to go through an approach that will minimize travel time & cost on a variety of transportation modes using the available media that include telephone, SMS and the Internet. This system incorporates unbiased-ness (best output) and consistency (expected output) into its core operations. At present there is no such type of system exists in our country. But similar kind of system exists in other countries. Some research work has already done in the development of this system. The major focuses in building the web application are Generate Route Direction, View Specific Node and Edge Information GIS information about each node is stored into the database where we provide the approximate location of the node by giving the GPS coordinate point. Users can access this system through different available and flexible media. The comparison between the existing status of research and development of Traveler Information System and the system that we proposed indicate that yet we can enhance and improve the service through many different ways based on the availability and applications of current technology, equipments and resources. If we consider about the cost for the users if it is adapted by the city government then for web-based solution it will be free, for SMS based solution users will pay the same rate as the any other SMS push-pull services.
