An Empirical Analysis of the Relationship between Access to Bus Operation Information and Bus Use

This study examines the effects of the implementation of bus operation information services on bus usage by analyzing the relationships that exist between frequency of bus operation and bus route characteristics, as well as the relationship between external factors, such as bus operation status and the number of bus users. This analysis employs access log data collected from “,” the Toei bus operation information service, usage history information drawn from bus IC card data, and bus operation information accumulated in the Toei bus operation management system. Based on the results of comparative analyses of the number of people who accessed the bus system’s home page, the number of IC card bus rides, and bus location data, this study examined the relationship between information provided and bus usage.
