THE OPERATION OF URBAN BUS ROUTES. 3 WIDER ASPECTS OF OPERATION

This is the last in a series of three articles on the operation of urban bus routes. The operation is studied in terms of the times spent by passengers and buses in different stages of their journeys. The first article provided an introduction to the subject area and a framework for assessing route performance, together with some results. The second article assessed the sources of irregularity in bus route operation and compared their magnitudes. This final article presents a variety of topics of a broader nature of relevance to the passenger, the traffic engineer and the bus operator. Included are walking to and waiting at stops, measuring delays to buses, and the optimum spacing of stops and routes. It concludes with a discussion on the implications of the work reported in the whole series. /Author/TRRL/
