Wireless Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANET) provide end-users with a flexible and cheap way to access and exchange information. While most research in MANETs is oriented to the general application environments, little work is done to utilize the specific characteristics of particular application scenarios, in which end-users' behavior is quite predictable or controllable. To deploy a MANET for a particular realistic system, the end-users' behavior, or profiles, can be used to simplify the implementation and enhance the network performance. We present a scheme to simplify routing strategy in MANET with the help of end-users' mobility profiles. We also study how the routing strategy improves the network performance in a realistic city transportation system
