JOURNEY TIME AND OCCUPANCY CHARACTERISTICS OF THE HELSINKI METROPOLITAN PUBLIC TRANSPORT SYSTEM

This study which provides a method by which the Helsinki Metropolitan Public Transport System can be divided into homogeneous categories, also calculates the journey time and occupancy characteristics of these categories, and finds how journey time and occupancy characteristics depend on the characteristics of routes, the relationships between different journey time characteristics, and the dependence of journey time on occupancy. The study also compares different journey times with each other and different vehicles types with each other. The Helsinki public transportation system can be divided into 6 vehicle - route combinations which include 295 routes of the metropolitan total of 302 routes. District differences were found between routes of different types, whereas the differences between vehicles were generally small. Models are presented which can be used for different stages of planning.
