In bus system, to provide appropriate services for passenger demand cannot be ignored. When the trend, low birth rate with senior citizens, is coming in our country, re-understanding bus passenger information needs and information behavior must be concerned in an being E-government. By information seeking (behavior) and participating observation the passengers, need and behavior are surveyed. After understanding the local bus system, the research suggests an information schema to solve the problem to fit the information meaning of the information seeking.
