This article, the first of three dealing with methods for planning bus services, introduces a basic approach and gives some practical guidelines on how to set about evaluating alternative schemes. First, the advantages of two forms of evaluation are compared: an approach based on assessing extra passenger-miles generated; and a cost-benefit approach. The use of an evaluation framework is illustrated by considering a typical case of reducing service frequencies. Overall, the cost-benefit approach is shown to be both useful and manageable in evaluating most schemes for improving bus services.(a) (TRRL)
