Waiting time in bus stops heavily affects traveler attitude towards public transportation and therefore is an important element for consideration when planning and operating a bus system. Furthermore, what passengers perceive as waiting time is often quite different from their actual waiting time at a bus stop. In this context, we present an empirical investigation of actual and perceived waiting times at bus stops for the case of a large bus network, using hazard-based duration models. The… Expand

Model Passengers' Travel Time for Conventional Bus Stop
TLDR
By analyzing the results, conclusion was conducted that short headway can reduce passengers’ waiting time at bus stop and the theoretical analysis explained the inefficiency of bus stops with more than three berths from the perspective of passengers' additional walking time. Expand
Modeling of public transport waiting time indicator for the transport network of a large city
TLDR
The results of the research showed that the age, purpose of the trip and the time period influence the waiting time perception, prolong it and lead to its reassessment. Expand
Estimation of passenger waiting time using automatically collected transit data
TLDR
The effects of transit vehicle delays on passenger waiting time is investigated, as well as the effects of transfer status, boarding location, time of day, and rider travel frequency. Expand
Modelling passenger waiting time using large-scale automatic fare collection data: An Australian case study
Passenger waiting time at transit stops is an important component of overall travel time and is perceived to be less desirable than in-vehicle travel time or access time. Therefore, an accurate modelExpand
Factors of Perceived Waiting Time and Implications on Passengers’ Satisfaction with Waiting Time
TLDR
It is found that the relationship between perceived waiting time and passengers’ satisfaction with the waiting time follows a decreasing exponential distribution, which proves that passenger mood with short waiting time is more sensitive than with longer waiting time. Expand
Modeling Transit User Travel Time Perception in a Post-Economic Recession Era: The Case of Athens, Greece
Travel time perception modeling and analysis is required for the planning, design and evaluation of public transportation systems. Often, changes in socioeconomic conditions may have an impact to theExpand
Evaluation of Travel Time at Conventional Bus Stops
A limited number of berths can result in a bus stopping upstream of a bus stop when the berths are fully occupied. When this traffic situation occurs, passengers waiting on the platform usuallyExpand

Passenger Wait Time Perceptions at Bus Stops: Empirical Results and Impact on Evaluating Real - Time Bus Arrival Information
This study quantifies the relationship between the perceived and actual waiting times experienced by passengers at a bus stop. Understanding such a relationship would be useful in quantifying theExpand
Do Transit Users Just Wait for Buses or Wait with Strategies?
TLDR
The effects of bus line headway, schedule reliability index, and many other potential predictors on passenger waiting times were investigated and the benefits of coordinated arrivals compared with random arrivals were presented. Expand
