Study for the improvement of the commercial speed of the bus

This study is based on the clear and progressive decrease in the commercial speed of buses from the city of Barcelona in recent years. This fact results in a loss of quality of service, an inability to increase the passage with an increase in operating costs.

This project has required exhaustive field work in order to define and locate the actual incidents affecting the decline of the commercial speed: friction with the private vehicle, with the operations of loading and unloading, illegal parking, by turns to the right, etc. This information allows modelling through a movement of the bus microsimulations, combining variables that affect the commercial speed.

The use of a PDA with GPS in field work allows you to define and locate, representing it in a geographic information system (geographic information system) the effects of the day in any timeslot and day for each of the lines. This allows to determine the most troubled stops of the tour represents the time that the buses are detained, as well as propose future solutions to reduce this time and improve the commercial speed.
