The present paper is a mathematical description of an urban bus route carrying peak hour traffic. The deterministic and stochastic mechanisms of bus operation are analysed - with focus on time evolution - and general models for route structure, boarding and alighting, link travel times and stop times are formulated. Estimation of model parameters is performed on data from a bus route in central Stockholm. Various measures of goodness of fit are used for validation and model choice, the final models being chosen primarily for application in an interactive simulation program. /TRRL/
