The Simulation is a key element in efficient management and operation of public transport. This activity includes processing of dynamic data possibly obtained through sensors, as well dealing with static information including map digitalization. A fundamental problem is that, although available, systems that perform these activities are proprietary solutions, have high cost of acquisition, are difficult to be used by non-experts, or offer a limited number of features, without considering important aspects such as changes in travel demand and traffic flow. To address this problem, this paper presents a friendly simulation for public transport systems implemented with support of open technologies. Dynamism to modeling bus and travelers behavior is offered by a MAS (multi-agent system). Our simulation was experimentally evaluated using as scenario a medium-sized city with different travel demand and traffic flow.
