The article introduces the methods to gather data about the supply and demand of the public transport using the smart card payment system (SCPS) and some design tools and methods developed for public transport planning in Finland. The large-scale utilisation of the SCPS data requires that a new kind of analysis system should be developed on the ideas presented in the article.
