dc.description.abstract
Understanding the variability of public transport travel times is essential for various reasons, e.g. for gaining knowledge of the deteriorations and ameliorations in daily traffic, for providing adequate (real time) information to customers and for optimizing transit schedules. This paper deals with this issue by modeling the day-to-day variability of running times ofurban buses on a section level. The investigation bases on planned and actual arisen arrival and departure time data of a selected bus route in Zurich and is conducted by the aid of statistical distributions. In order to find the most appropriate distribution models for running times, we present methodologies to test and choose "good" distributions and fit conventional as well as mixture distributions. Mixture distributions provide an improved fit to the data in terms of BIC and effect size, but the components need to be justified. This work also introduces an approach to fit meaningful component distributions.
