With the growing interest in Smart City using Internet of Things (IoT) the focus in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) has increased, and consequently has been used to monitor numerous environments, such as health, habitat control, houses and public transportation. Due this expansion, the numbers of technologies and researches on bus monitoring systems has increase. Thereby, this survey provides information about researches, used technologies, implementation, difficulties and problems on bus monitoring systems.
