TRANSIT TIME COMPARISONS
The following comparisons are based on analyzing how long it takes to get to each of the following points on the map below, both with the Pulse Plan and with LeeTran's current operation. These points were chosen because they are the farthest parts of the LeeTran system. All other points in the system will be along the routes leading to these farthest points, so this is a good way to see how the system actually performs "from end to end."
The chart below shows that it takes LeeTran over two hours to transport a passenger between any two points 80% of the time. It takes over three hours 49% of the time, and it takes over four hours 11% of the time. The Pulse Plan in contrast is able to transport passengers between any two points in under two hours 73% of the time, and it can transport its passengers between any two points in an average of under three hours 99% of the time!
The following is a detailed analysis of how quickly customers get to their destination points. Conclusions are summarized at the bottom of the graph -- on average it takes 45% less travel time and 25% less wait time than is available presently, and there are more than double the ways of getting to one's destination! Whichever way one goes from any origin to any destination, the Pulse Plan can save on average over 75 minutes on a passenger's travel time.
The above graph is based upon an analysis of LeeTran's schedules compared with the Timed Transfer Pulse System as shown below. To investigate a particular analysis of the routes below, just right-click on a link and open in a new tab.
