Transit travel time and operating speed influence service attractiveness, operating cost, and system efficiency. The objective of this paper is to estimate the values of parameters that affect the total travel time for a particular bus route in Portland, Oregon. The Metropolitan Transportation District of Oregon (TriMet) provides transit service in the three-county Portland metropolitan area. TriMet has implemented a Bus Dispatch System (BDS) as a part of its overall service control and… 
Exploring Data Driven Models of Transit Travel Time and Delay
TLDR
Examination of the potential applications of higher resolution transit operations data for a bus route in Portland, Oregon and the benefits of archiving higher resolution data to understand bus movement between stops, and future research opportunities are examined.
Exploring Applications of Second-Generation Archived Transit Data for Estimating Performance Measures and Arterial Travel Speeds
TLDR
Results suggest that the 5-SR data provide high-resolution information on time and position that can be used to determine bus travel speeds between bus stops, identify speed breakdowns, and estimate intersection signal and queuing delays.
Development of Transit Trip Time Model and Consolidation of Bus Stops Based on Acceptable Walking Distance Using GIS
TLDR
The results indicate that consolidation of bus stops could improve the travel time and save total travel time cost.
Assessment of an Optimal Bus Stop Spacing Model Using High Resolution Archived Stop-Level Data
With increasing attention being paid to performance and financial issues related to the operation of public transportation systems, it is necessary to develop tools for improving the efficiency and
Identification of Affecting Factors on the Travel Time Reliability for Bus Transportation
TLDR
Based on the proposed model factors affecting TT reliability, it was found that TT is strongly affected by the number of bus stoppings and also the length of the route, and more passengers boarding and paying cash increased the travel time reliability of buses.
Assessing a Model for Optimal Bus Stop Spacing with High-Resolution Archived Stop-Level Data
With increasing attention given to performance and financial issues related to the operation of public transportation systems, tools are needed to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of service
Beyond Generating Transit Performance Measures
TLDR
The power of using visualization tools to understand the abundance of BDS data is demonstrated and several statistical models are generated to demonstrate the power of statistical analysis in conveying valuable and new TPMs beyond what is currently generated at TriMet or in the transit industry in general.
Timetable optimization for single bus line involving fuzzy travel time
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the established model is effective and useful to seek a practical balance between the bus carriers’ interest and passengers' interest.
