Effects of transit quality of service characteristics on daily bus ridership
Kashfi, Syeed, Bunker, Jonathan M., & Yigitcanlar, Tan (2015) Effects of transit quality of service characteristics on daily bus ridership. In Perk, Victoria (Ed.) Transportation Research Board 94th Annual Meeting, 11-15 January 2015, Washington, D.C.
This study investigates whether an Australian city’s suburbs having high transit Quality of Service (QoS) are associated with higher transit ridership than those having low transit QoS
•We explore how QoS measures including service frequency, service span, service coverage, and travel time ratio, along with implicit environmental predictors such as topographic grade factor influence bus ridership
•We applied Multiple Linear Regression (MLR) to examine the relationship between QoS and ridership
•Its outcomes enhance our understanding of transit user behavior, which is informative to urban transportation policy, planning, and provision
