Research Paper - Optimal Bus Stop Spacing - May 2016

30, Nov 2019

The basis for this research paper is to determine what the relationship between bus stop spacing and fixed-route operations as well as the relationship to the transit rider experience. Research suggests that bus stop spacing has far-reaching effects upon mass transit both for the operator and for the user. Bus stop spacing can impact system reliability, average bus speed and even overall operating expense. These three indicators of performance can have further reaching effects upon policy decisions, service enhancements (or cuts) and system wide ridership.

Bus Stop flag and post design - City University London 2015

30, Nov 2019

The design of London’s bus shelters has evolved only slowly over the decades, with a focus on cost reduction and mass production put ahead of users’ needs. Our group project brief was to rethink the basic design of the London bus shelter, and how it supports use by different communities of passengers for local bus services in London suburbs. We were encouraged to think about comfort, convenience and safety, and how HCI could enhance passengers’ experience. As an academic project, the other focus was on evaluating the ways that creative design techniques and tools might be used in the creative process, and in aiding us arrive at a design prototype with significant novelty and utility.
