This report represents a first step in developing a systematic approach to interstate bus route performance. The North Jersey Bus Route Evaluation System is a set of specific measures of bus performance for interstate bus routes in northern New Jersey. These standards are used to evaluate interstate bus route characteristics including passenger levels, service coverage, and net revenue. Focusing on the performance of route segments, they are designed to complement the more general bus service standards and serve as a tool in alering bus route patterns in a given study area. The standards used were developed in conjunction with a restructuring of interstate bus routes serving the George Washington Bridge Bus Station in New York City. However, the evaluation discussed in this study was designed for application to any interstate bus route in northern New Jersey to New York City. It is hoped that by formalizing route segment evaluation, these measures can be used for performing a periodic review of interstate bus route performance as well as for major route restructuring studies in New Jersey. The appendices in this report provide Service Standards Guidelines, George Washington Bridge Route Executive Summary, and George Washington Bridge Route Maps.
