A study was conducted to develop updated principles, practices, and procedures for transit capacity and quality of service. Such a study focuses on developing a new Transit Capacity and Quality of Service Manual, which will be a comprehensive document summarizing transit capacity and quality of service concepts, procedures, and applications. Thus, three other key components of the study included updating the transit chapters in the new year 2000 Highway Capacity Manual, identifying overall research needs in transit capacity and quality of service, and conducting research in identified areas.
