ESTIMATING TRANSIT DEMAND, FLEET SIZE, AND COSTS FOR SMALL COMMUNITIES

Forecasting transit demand and estimating costs for transit systems in smaller communities is very difficult. The Ready Reckoner approach developed in 1974 has been used successfully in smaller urban and suburban areas throughout Canada. This approach can be used to estimate potential demand, system size, and cost parameters. It is a shortcut estimating tool intended primarily as assistance to policymakers in deciding whether or not more detailed analyses and feasibility studies are warranted rather than as a substitute for those necessary calculations.
