1. A method of accounting for passengers on a bus having a location sensing element receiver and a set of exits and that has a regular route, in which each passenger has a predesignated stop to disembark:

  • (a) providing a machine readable token for each passenger;

    (b) providing a token reading machine at each said exit;

    (c) providing a computer communicatively coupled to said location sensing element and having computer memory, having a list of route stop locations and matching each passenger with a route stop,(d) a signaling device, responsive to said computer and capable of signaling a proper passenger exit and an improper passenger exit;

    (e) requiring each passenger to have his token read by one of said token reading machines as he disembarks; and

    (f) wherein said computer compares a reading from said location sensing element to determine at which predesignated stop said bus is located and causes said signaling device to signal a proper passenger exit when a passenger has his token read at a stop for which he is paired in computer memory and signal an improper passenger exit when a passenger has his token read at a stop for which he is not matched in said computer memory.
