The capacity of a bus station is considered in relation to the quality of service offered to the user. The quality of service is defined in terms of the proportion of buses delayed and queuing theory is used to relate this to bus arrival rate, layover time and the number of stands provided. The results are presented graphically for single and multiple channel operation. The effect of a waiting room, or holding area, for buses on the size of the docking area is then explored. This arrangement may offer significant savings in station area. /Author/TRRL/
