Sensors at public transport stop to improve PT service.

There is a problem in my city: poor dispatching and management of public transport. It is caused by a lack of awareness of a number of passengers in a PT unit, of a number of passengers at stops and traffic conditions. The idea is to provide stops with detectors which may estimate the number of passengers waiting for PT and show the traffic controller the "global" map of needs in PT units at certain place, so the controller may redirect some units to provide reinforced PT service in certain direction, while there is no need in PT in other places. In my opinion this system may provide better service especially during rush hours, after delays and during special events involving large amount of participants. The system is an additional tool to GPS-monitoring and notification tools at stops.
