METHODOLOGY FOR MEASURING THE LEVEL OF QUALITY OF PUBLIC BUS TRANSPORT

METHODIEK TER BEPALING VAN HET KWALITEITSNIVEAU VAN HET OPENBAAR BUSVERKEER

Seven levels of quality are defined, three of them related to separated bus roads and four on situations where buses have to mingle with other traffic (cf the HCM levels of service). A measuring method is developed to determine the influence of design factors like radii, distances between stops etc on the level of quality. It now becomes easy to examine how service speeds are affected if design criteria are not met. The methodology is illustrated with examples from practice.(a)
