Stochastic analysis of transit route segments' passenger load variation for capacity & quality of service assessment
Bunker, Jonathan M. (2015) Stochastic analysis of transit route segments' passenger load variation for capacity & quality of service assessment. In Transportation Research Board 94th Annual Meeting, 11-15 January 2015, Washington, D.C.
This study uses weekday Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) data on a premium bus line in Brisbane, Australia
•Stochastic analysis is compared to peak hour factor (PHF) analysis for insight into passenger loading variability
•Hourly design load factor (e.g. 88th percentile) is found to be a useful method of modeling a segment’s passenger demand time-history across a study weekday, for capacity and QoS assessment
•Hourly coefficient of variation of load factor is found to be a useful QoS and operational assessment measure, particularly through its relationship with hourly average load factor, and with design load factor
•An assessment table based on hourly coefficient of variation of load factor is developed from the case study
