The HSR does occassionally count ridership on certain routes occassionally, like the McMaster route. I remember they had someone sit on the bus with a clipboard and count people as they boarded. Unfortunately they were they chose exam week to do it, when the flow of students is light and irregular. But I do recall an exchange between the counter and bus driver about how the newer buses were all supposed to be able to count individuals on their own, through some sort of sensor? But they never worked reliably, hence the reason for a person sitting there and counting (can't trust the drivers to count of course!).
