Research on Survey and Calculation of Load Factor in Urban Public Transportation
Abstract
In order to solve the problems of unclear definition, unclear scope and unsuitable methods in the survey and calculation of urban public transportation load factor, this paper combines with other scholars’ definition and calculation methods of load factor. From the purpose of load factor statistics and the sense of evaluation, the survey method of load factor is used to redefine the calculation method of the load factor index value in the morning and evening peak hours, and the index value of load factor can be calculated through actual survey, which reflects the passenger flow of the urban public transportation in the morning and evening peak hours. Through the analysis of passenger flow in different directions, distribution analysis of regional passenger flow, and trend analysis of passenger flow in a single line, the characteristics of urban bus passenger flow are learned. Finally, based on the actual survey cases of urban public transportation load factor index, the feasibility, reliability and adaptability of the index calculation method are verified, which lays a foundation for the urban public transportation load factor survey and calculation.
