PASSENGER RESISTANCE TO A RURAL BUS-BUS INTERCHANGE

Passenger resistance to the use of a rural bus-bus interchange facility in west Yorkshire has been investigated. When alternate through and transfer journeys were offered at hourly intervals a high proportion of travellers delayed or advanced their desired journey time to avoid the transfer. In the case of the transfer journeys the resistance which travellers displayed to using the interchange facility increased with trip length. For inter-urban trips, when through and transfer journeys were offered simultaneously by different routes, virtually all travellers took the through journey in spite of the fact that there was virtually no difference in journey time or fare. /Author/
