THE INFLUENCE OF SERVICE FREQUENCY ON TRAFFIC VOLUMES IN MASS TRANSIT

TURTAETHETENS INVERKAN PAA TRAFIKMAENGDEN I KOLLEKTIV LOKALTRAFIK

This paper deals with the problems of separating the influence of frequency from a great number of other parameters which also affect traffic volume. The investigation area is close to the central business district of Stockholm with an underground line which had its time table intervals changed from 10 to 15 and from 15 to 7.5 minutes. This area is compared with similar areas served by other underground lines with no change in frequency. Similarity and constancy or co-variation of most parameters whose influence cannot be correctly compensated for or avoided by the layout of this investigation is checked for all areas. After 2 years there is an increase in traffic with at least 16% during 0900 - 1500 hours and at least 10% during late evening traffic. /TRRL/
