Abstract—Buses are the most widely used in transit technology today. Due to the limited other types of public transportation, passenger demand for using the bus network is higher. In fact, static structure and real operation of bus scheduling have some difference with each other, due to some cases, such as traffic congestion and accumulation of delays of buses missions. The most different on bus operation elements is duration rush traffic period that standard deviation is very far in compare by duration light traffic period. Proper Schedule of bus service is a main issue in reliability of bus operation. In the present paper we compare the different bus operation elements that obtained by questionnaire duration rush and light traffic period. Hence, a case study based on an actual public bus operation in Tehran, Iran is used to demonstrate the differences.

Index Terms—Efficient bus lane, waiting time, average speed of bus operation, journey time.
