The public transportation system everywhere is under constant pressure for betterment of the customer service, security, safety and contentment while streamlining the process of commuting. This paper proposes a mathematical model for realization of the aforesaid goals in the public bus transportation system through the use of wireless sensor technology and radio frequency identification (RFID). The conducted simulation experiments demonstrate that a higher quality of service could be provided by emphasizing the improvement of the vehicles and their scheduling through the use of sensor-based technology to the transportation infrastructure.
