I've been assuming that public buses would be able to detect how many passengers might be on board by detecting the weight changes from an internal sensor of the tire pressures. Count the jumps up and jumps down in weight as people step on and step off, etc.

And that they'd be reporting that back to the central database along with their gps etc.
