3-Improving High frequency bus service reliability through better scheduling by Fattouche, Grace. Several factors influence bus transit reliability which includes bus stop conditions along the route, traffic conditions, route of travel and time of day. The overall transit bus reliability is generally affected by dwell time (DT), the fare payment method, the bus stop location, and the number of passengers alighting or boarding.
