A REVIEW OF FACTORS THAT DETERMINE AVERAGE DOOR-TO-DOOR SPEEDS FOR ALTERNATIVE TRANSIT SYSTEMS

The purpose of this report is to review and analyze the various elements that affect door-to-door travel speed on transit systems and the possible effect of these speeds on route choice. The discussion of these elements is divided into four parts: 1) The identification of the components that make up transit travel time. 2) Non-main-line penalties of travel time. 3) Main-line speeds for eight types of transit operations. 4) A case study of two transit systems to show how travel time is affected by trip length, and what the resultant effect is on trip routing. /GMRL/
