Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) on-campus bus service is the internal bus service to transport students within university residential areas and the UTHM campus. The bus service is intended to fulfil UTHM students' travel demand. UTHM has designed a bus trip schedule based on the needs of students. Several common issues presented in this research, include, the actual bus journeys are usually behind the schedule and the bus service does not comply with passenger demand, especially students who are depended on the bus for travel. These can be seen that the number of student influence bus service demand. Regarding these issues, the objective of the study is made to measure UTHM passengers’ demand, measure actual bus headway at UTHM and to simulate the existing bus headway based on passengers’ demand. This research presents PTV VISSIM to provide the benefits of simulation modelling in bus routes and determine the headway to meet the passengers’ demand. Based on the analysed data, it shows that BS 15 at the Residential College of Tun Dr Ismail and BS 1 located at the Residential College of Perwira were the highest passengers’ demand in UTHM. Meanwhile, BS 2 located at Dataran Anggerik is the highest bus demand along the bus route. Throughout in this research, the actual headway is still under control although it only several minutes departs earlier and depart behind the timetable. It can be concluded that most of students who are stayed in the residential college were alight and board the bus on daily is the highest passengers’ demand. Accurate passenger demand is the fundamental of a bus scheduling and has important implication in improving bus service in UTHM.
