MODELS FOR TRANSPORTATION LEVEL OF SERVICE

The paper describes the development of models for predicting travel times of door to door trips for both transit and automobile trips. The models for access times have a distribution associated with them and permit a truly disaggregate assignment of travel time components. The equations for linehaul travel time of the highway using modes (bus, auto) are volume dependent and can thus be used in equilibrating travel demand and level of service. All the models are related directly to transportation policy options - changing bus line spacings, bus headways, number of (priority) lanes etc - and translate the effects of such policies into specific values of the level-of-service attributes without the need to code networks and run paths. The use of the model in a practical application is also discussed. (a) (TRRL)
