DIAL-A-BUS DEMAND MODELLING AND EVALUATION: PREDICTIONS FOR THE HARLOW EXPERIMENT

This report describes the demand model and benefit analysis which will be used in the assessment of dial-a-bus as a form of public transport in the United Kingdom. A modal-split model is used to determine the diversion of patronage to the new mode and the benefits of time and resource savings are calculated by conventional methods. As an example of the use of these techniques, a detailed prediction of the patronage and benefits of the Harlow dial-a-bus experiment is reported. The results of this analysis are used to indicate improvements to the demand model which may be incorporated into subsequent studies. (A) /TRRL/
