Comprehensive Evaluation Framework of Multi-Mode Public Transportation Service Levels

The analysis of the multi-mode public transportation evaluation framework aims to provide theoretical support to the assessment of public transportation service levels. However, many studies extend service level with respect to a single trip mode. The multi-mode public transportation includes the metro, ordinary bus and bus rapid transit. Based on smart card data, the trip chain was extracted for further study on the job-housing relationship and network service level. Afterwards, the public transportation network coverage and the transfer convenience degree were considered for research on public transportation accessibility. Besides, load factor was determined for framework evaluation, as well. The service level evaluation provides the real-time travel information for ridership to plan more suitable trip chains, in the meantime, offer guidance for commuters to select workplace and residence scientifically. Moreover, the comprehensive evaluation framework not only contributes to the adjustment of intelligent schedules but also optimizes the public transportation service level.
