Research into the impact of factors that influence bus journey times.
This research investigates the impact of factors that influence bus journey times. It measures this impact on particular bus routes.
This project consisted of 2 stages.
The first stage was a review of potential factors influencing bus journey time variability. It proposed a methodology for the collection of data to estimate the impact of these different factors.
The second stage was a pilot study to demonstrate the methodology in the ‘real-world’. This involved collecting data over 3 week period from a bus service between Bristol and Bath and analysing the results.
These 2 reports summarise the work undertaken throughout each of these phases.
