MORE CONVENIENT CHANGING AT PLACES WITH A CONCENTRATION OF BUS STOPS

GERIEFELIJKER OVERSTAPPEN OP EEN BUSSENPLEIN MET HALTECONCENTRATIE

One of the measures which public transport companies can take to improve their product lies in the field of provisions for changing. This article deals with a system that has been developed with the purpose of reducing the inconvenience of changing at big stations with much bus movement and a large concentration of stops. It also pays attention to the arrival and departure platforms as well as the buffer space, the working out of the chance that the buses that arrive will outnumber the platforms is based on the method of elementary probability calculation. In the case of busy stations the application of formulae from the stochastic theory of processes is more suitable. /TRRL/
