The bus system in Cuernavaca, Mexico and its connections to random matrix distributions have been the subject of an interesting recent study by M Krblek and P eba in [15, 16]. In this paper we introduce and analyse a microscopic model for the bus system. We show that introducing a natural repulsion does produce random matrix distributions in natural double scaling regimes. The techniques employed include non-intersecting paths, logarithmic potential theory, determinantal point processes, and asymptotic analysis of several orthogonal polynomial ensembles. In addition, we introduce a circular bus model and include various calculations of non-crossing probabilities.
