These should help and all are free

crowd maker:


and my weak unfinished emulation at trying to do similar things as the systems above using craig reynolds 'boids' techniques:

Examples of bTraffic - a traffic animation tool for Maya
bFlocking - a tool for Maya 8.5+ to generate flocking and swarming behaviours
