Passenger Flow Estimation and Characteristics Expansion

The objectives of this study are to investigate the estimation of bus passenger boarding-to-alighting (B2A) flows using Automatic Passenger Count (APC) and Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) (fare-box) data for general applications and for the specific purpose of expanding socioeconomic and travel (SE&T) characteristics collected though onboard interviews or questionnaires. APC and AFC data are already being collected by transit agencies for other purposes. Therefore, if these data sources can be exploited to provide sufficiently good estimates of B2A flows, the practice of collecting B2A flows with costly and labor-intensive onboard B2A surveys could be reduced or eliminated, at least for some applications
