Demand planning guidance

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Transport for London,

For bus route planners, there is a guidance on planning bus routes and service patterns. Specifically I want to request on how demand is measured and the guidance behind it on measuring demand i.e developments or increased usage

Yours faithfully,

Dear Sean Cirillo

 

Our ref: FOI-0952-2122/GH

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 3
August 2021 asking for information about bus route planning.

 

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and our information access policy. I can confirm that
we do hold the information you require.

 

Please see the published guidelines, which are currently under review: 
[1]http://content.tfl.gov.uk/bus-service-pl...

 

Specifically demand is measured through data gained from passengers
tapping in on buses giving time, boarding point and routes, and inferred
alighting points, backed up by manual on-bus and off-bus surveys.  Future
changes in demand would be forecast via TfL’s strategic models and
information from local authorities and transport assessments from
developments.  Please see the following links:
