This paper discusses strategies of transit operation, differentiating between the all-day service function and the peak-hour operations of providing traffic and parking relief. A general mode split formula in which the disutility of the car is equated to the disutility of transit is used to evaluate the relevant factors in the individual choice of transit mode. Various types of networks are examined. For cities with low densities of development the timed transfer system is shown to give maximum destination opportunity. The concept of levels of service is discussed from the point of view of the passenger. It is recommended that levels of service be studied in greater depth so that these factors could also be considered. /Author/
