I-95 NW 7TH AVENUE BUS/CAR POOL SYSTEMS DEMONSTRATION PROJECT REPORT I-3. CHANGES IN TRANSIT OPERATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS ON THE NW 7TH AVENUE EXPRESS BUS SYSTEM

This report was written to present the evaluation of the operational characteristics of the Orange Streaker express bus system. The evaluation was conducted collecting data needed to develop primary and secondary measures of system performance for determination of system operating, ridership and revenue characteristics of the Orange Streaker system. The analysis showed that one-way peak period express service resulted in large portions of non-productive (deadhead) time and miles. Ridership generally increased although some routes experienced low levels of utilization. The fare structure provided revenue-generating characteristics that were inadequate to support the quality of service provided. Service modifications to improve the efficiency of operation and fare increases are necessary to reduce deficit operations.
