A MODEL FOR MEASURING THE LEVEL OF QUALITY OF PUBLIC BUS TRANSPORT

METHODIEK TER BEPALING VAN HET KWALITEITSNIVEAU VAN HET OPENBAAR BUSVERVOER

The model, described in this paper is aimed at determining simply, at the design stage, the influence of town-planning and traffic-planning design on the quality level of a bus service. For that purpose in the first instance six levels of quality are defined. Three of these levels are related to separated bus roads and three to buses among other traffic (cf "levels of service" hcm). A scale is developed to determine the influence of design factors such as curvature, distance between stops, on the quality level. In this way it is easy to examine how the service speed is influenced, when the requisite design criteria are not reached. The methodology is illustrated with examples from practice. (Author/TRRL)
