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/
