THE STEVENAGE SUPERBUS EXPERIMENT. APPLICATION OF RESULTS TO TRANSPORTATION PLANNING

This paper discusses the stevenage superbus experiment with respect to the application of results to other transportation plans. The philosophy of providing an improved bus service as a positive benefit to the community is one which is finding fruition in the West Hertfordshire transportation study. The cost-benefit relationship of deference to improved public transport has been investigated in depth in Stevenage and application of results of the superbus experiment, in particular a generalised-cost/demand model, has led to a public transport strategy which is to be implemented in Hemel Hempstead. A demand model is derived for the newly introduced superbus 3 service and the results are compared with previous models derived for the first two superbus services. A high degree of correlation between these models would reinforce the application of previous results to the Hemel Hempstead public transport system. /TRRL/
