A reliable mass transport system is one of the essential indicators for the development in a country. Unfortunately higher numbers of vehicle increase air pollution as well as the greenhouse gas emission. An electric bus commuter system is an alternative solution to overcome those problems. However, not only the electric bus but also infrastructures are required to be constructed to maintain the sustainability of the commuter system. This paper discusses a case study as a part of stages in order to implement a commuter bus system in a suburban area. Observations of passenger's quantity are conducted in every bus stations. Thus, this study successfully generates a pattern of the commuter passengers in the selected region. Among the monitored bus stations, the highest number of the average onboard and off-board passengers are 18.34 and 16.44 respectively. Furthermore, the result is utilized to obtain the needed power consumption of the electric bus during the trip. The total energy consumption of the electric bus during one trip is around 550 kWh during one trip operation with minimum electric motor rated power of 160 kW. And finally, the appropriate power management schedule system can be chosen to support this commuter system.
