SAN BERNARDINO FREEWAY EXPRESS BUSWAY EVALUATION OF MIXED-MODE OPERATIONS INTERIM REPORT - STAGE 1

The report evaluates mixed mode operations on the San Bernardino Freeway Express Busway. Carpools having three or more occupants, and vanpools began sharing the Busway with buses in October 1976. Preliminary findings for the first eight months of operation using the easterly seven mile segment of the Busway are documented. Carpool volumes have grown to about 900 cars per peak four hour period and have an observed occupancy of 3.3 persons per car, or about 3000 daily carpoolers. Bus ridership has not been noticeably affected, and total person-volumes over the 4-hour peak now slightly exceed the average volume on one adjacent freeway lane. During the one-hour peak, it is about double the person-volume and is still well below capacity. About 30 percent of carpoolers surveyed felt that their carpool formed because the busway opened for carpool use.
