The use of Global Positioning System (GPS) has remarkable contribution in tracking human behaviour ranging from stationed persons to those in transit, especially trans-border bus drivers. With the current road Carnegies in E.African routes there suffices need to track vehicles and drivers behavior from a central station. This not only curbs down bribery with traffic officers but also tames bus drivers hence reducing on accident prevalence. A design science research methodology was adopted with six major bus companies and a prototype (Me V track system) developed to assist in this Nobel cause. It was found to be handy in reducing fatal accidents in the region. However the research recommends that in an event that the GPS is incapacitated the SMS enabled notification can be of paramount importance
