Sample text

Unlike car journeys, where some route variation has occurred because of traffic management, bus journeys have been affected by changes of routes by buses as well. There is a missing walk journey time in 1988, so that the means are noutrictly comparable. 1 Travel time versus direct distance for buses (1983) 6 Journey Speeds: Potential Journeys 45 so often for passengers. In addition, the walking and waiting adds a further time penalty, so that buses overall, in central London, only give direct journey speeds of some four miles/h, well under half the kerb-to-kerb direct journey speeds of cars.

This, as can be seen by comparison with the previous figure, is roughly the central portion of the route of the Post Office Railway. When traffic speeds were measured for the Royal Commission for London Traffic in 1904, in Vol. 27 miles/h in the reverse direction with the same conditions. The City Solicitor, Sir Homewood Crawford, in his evidence (Vol. 5 to six 42 Travel in Towns miles/h in the 'Crush Hour' and from 5. 5 miles/h respectively for motor omnibuses. 5 miles/h respectively, and for motor cabs were given as eight miles/h in the 'Crush Hour' and 12 miles/h in the 'Slack Hours'.

It is particularly unfortunate that no comparison seems to have been made in 1968 between the values obtained under the old coverage and the new, so that there is a gap in the sequence. In the Department of Transport's (DTp) compilation of historical results (Department of Transport, 1989b), there is likewise no attempt to estimate what the traffic speed values would have been in the latest central area survey in 1986 using the old RRL survey coverage as compared to the value obtained with the GLC coverage.
