Roadway Section Bus Stop Capacity Calculation Method Research

Firstly, this paper analyzes the details of bus operating characteristics at bus stops in affected areas. Further, key influencing factors of the capacity at bus stops are given, which include the number of boarding passengers, bus dwell time, clearance time, coefficient of variation of dwell times, and failure rate. In addition, this paper formulates the capacity model of the bus stops based on the regression fit method. Based on field data collected from typical bus stops in urban areas of Shanghai, quantitative research has been done to calibrate key parameters of the computing model. Also, some recommended values of key parameters are given according to the measured data. The results verified the accuracy of the model.
