Abstract

A procedure is detailed for producing bus system statistics from the standard planning models of the Urban Transportation Planning System (UTPS) and it is shown how this procedure can be used in conjuntion with the UPS procedures to undertake detailed long-range planning of a bus system. The capability of the procedure to produce data that accurately reflect the base year is shown to be considerably greater than that normally associated with aggregate travel-forecasting models. The capability of using the procedure to refine a long-range bus system is demonstrated in a case study from the Los Angeles area, and this shows that the procedure has the capability to provide clear indications of a variety of improvements to the efficiency of the planned bus network.
