DEMAND-ESTIMATING MODEL FOR TRANSIT ROUTE AND SYSTEM PLANNING IN SMALL URBAN AREAS

A simplified model for directly estimating transit route and system patronage for small urban areas is presented. A category approach is used to determine basic transit trip generation by automobile-ownership classification. The basic rate is then modified by a series of adjustment relations for trip length, walking distance, and service frequency to arrive at an estimate of patronage for the service alternative under study. The model can be manually applied and used to assess new service, extension of existing service, or improvements in the existing level of service. (Author)
