We know which lines in the New Network are intended for high ridership, and those are the ones where we’ll expect that outcome.(For my peer-reviewed academic paper on this issue, see here.) So for now, I’ll suppose that you do want a ridership-maximizing transit system. How do we network designers know that we’re designing one?The services that are trying to attract high ridership can be assessed for their ridership, and the coverage services, where ridership isn’t the goal, no longer count as because ridership is not what they’re trying to do.
The objective, instead, is to satisfy (a) and/or (b) above.
Frequency Matters First, you really must understand transit frequency.
It’s the elapsed time between consecutive buses (or trains, or ferries) on a line, which determines the maximum waiting time.
Services whose purpose is not ridership are called Any fixed service budget, divided over such a huge number of routes, yields low frequency, maybe a bus once an hour, and not many people find that useful for reasons we’ll explore below.
So ridership is usually low on these services, exactly as we network designers expect.
