An implementation of regularity-driven bus service: development of alternative business models
2014 (English)In: Transport Research Arena (TRA) 2014 Proceedings, 2014Conference paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Service reliability is a key determinant of public transport performance. In the context of high-frequency urban lines, irregular service results with long waiting times, bunched vehicles, long delays, uneven passenger loads, poor capacity utilization and higher operational costs. Field experiments were conducted in Stockholm in order to test the feasibility and implications of a regularity-driven operations scheme designed to mitigate bus bunching and facilitated by a real-time control strategy. The results led to an investigation of alternative service indicators and business models that could best support the long-term implementation of operations geared towards better regularity performance. A shift towards regularity-based service requires the consideration of a series of measures along the service chain as it involves a paradigm shift in production planning, operations, control center and performance monitoring.
