Required capacities are determined by the number of transported passengers, however, current practice of counting passenger by number of tickets sold or by manually counting the passenger in a given time period is neither reliable nor accurate. Use of IT technology is necessary for reliable and accurate counting of passengers. During the study of transport demand, the following component which are important for the analysis have been dentified: a) number of transported passengers, b) utilization of the travel route and c) capacity utilization. Such research of demand for transport can be used for inner city-suburban and regional transport in order to precisely establish the share of subsidies which can be obtained by each of the transport modes, which can have a significant impact on the price of the ticket.
