Public Transit, Route Revision, MATA BUS
Public transit is an essential part of a city’s transportation. An efficient transit system makes a city more sustainable by reducing the number of single occupancy vehicles leading to a reduction in emissions, energy consumption and less congestion on streets. Public serviceability is an important indicator to indicate how good a transit route is determined; however, it could change during the years since population density is variable. This study is intended to do a comparison between serviceability of a bus line in Memphis, Tennessee for one zip code area to point out the necessity of considering route revising in short-term transportation plans.
