DEVELOPMENT OF EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN METHODOLOGY FOR EVALUATING MASS TRANSIT DEMONSTRATIONS: AN APPLICATION TO THE SEATTLE EXPRESS BUS SERVICE DEMONSTRATION PROJECT VOLUME II-APPENDICES

One major objective of UMTA demonstration projects is to develop a systematic and effective means of evaluation of the projects which will enable determination not only of effectiveness of specific projects but also the extent of applicability to other areas in the country. This report sought to accomplish this objective through 3 steps: (1) determining the feasibility of using experimental design methodology to evaluate transit demonstration projects; (2) utilizing the methodology in assessing the impact of transit innovations; and (3) determining the implications and applications of the demonstration findings to other locales. The setting was established as Seattle, Washington, where an express bus service demonstration project was initiated in 1970, supported by UMTA R&D funds. This report contains the appendices of the Volume I Main Report. These appendices are: Magnitude of Ridership on Blue Streak Routes, Data from the Origin and Destination Surveys, Magnitude of Vehicles Using Expressway Facilities, Evaluation of Methods for Counting Bus Passengers, and Issues Arising in the Conduct of the Study.
