THE SHIRLEY HIGHWAY EXPRESS-BUS-ON-FREEWAY DEMONSTRATION PROJECT/A STUDY OF REVERSE COMMUTE SERVICE
Bus-on-freeway operations generally provide peak period commuter transit service to persons traveling from suburban residences through congested corridors to jobs in the major employment centers of metropolitan areas. In a few cases, peak period reverse commute operations may provide service to persons traveling from residences near the downtown employment centers to jobs in the suburbs. In early 1973, two major Shirley Highway Express-Bus-on-Freeway Demonstration Project reverse commute routes began service to office buildings in Northern Virginia. An analysis of this reverse commute service revealed that it was a successful operation because it provided considerable benefits to its patrons and was slightly profitable to the bus operator on an incremental cost basis.
