In Novemberthe MBTA launched a concerted effort to improve service quality on key bus routes. The Service Plan recommended improvements for various lines, including upgrading the 31 bus to Key Route standards. A second round of upgrades, entitled the Key Routes Improvement Project and costing $10 million in all, was supported by the American Recovery.

Introduction. A public transportation (PT) system has two major phases: planning and operation. The first phase aims at designing routes; time tables, synchronized transfers, and timed transfers that improve the planned transfers on the basis of a priori data (Ceder, ).Synchronized transfer studies are described by Wirasinghe and Liu,Ceder et al., Cited by: 8.

Introduction. Bus service, especially in busy urban areas, is facing the challenge to enhance its reliability. Studies have revealed that the preferences for public transportation in a standard commuting situation were enhanced not only by the belief that public transportation provided a shorter average travel time than traveling by car, but also by the belief that public Cited by: STRATEGIES FOR IMPROVING RELIABILITY OF BUS TRANSIT SERVICE.

Four major classes of strategies for improving reliability of bus transit service are analyzed: vehicle-holding strategies, reduction of the number of stops made by each bus, signal preemption, and.

Evaluation of Service Reliability Impacts of Traffic Signal Priority Strategies for Bus Transit James Chang ABSTRACT Recent progress in technology has facilitated the design, testing, and deployment of traffic signal priority strategies for transit buses.

However, a clear consensus has not emerged regarding the evaluation of these strategies.
