Service change statistics

The TTC's next round of service changes come March 29, and you can read all about them at their website. But, here are some interesting (or not) statistics I've pulled out of the data:

  • There are 23 instances where service will increase
    • The highest increase sees your wait drop by 15 minutes
    • The lowest increase sees your wait drop by 15 seconds 
    • On average the wait for a bus will decrease by 4 minutes, 32 seconds
  • There are 68 instances where service will decrease
    • The highest decrease sees your wait increase by 10 minutes
    • The lowest decrease sees your wait increase by 11 seconds
    • On average, the wait for a bus will increase by 1 minute, 36 seconds
  • Overall, waits for a bus will increase by 3.5 seconds on average
An instance is defined as a change made to service during a particular time of the day (AM peak, for example). If service is changing during the AM Peak and late evenings, for example, this would be two instances. 

While service decreases are never good, I wonder if the average rider will even notice. Even so, here's hoping that the fall brings better service to all transit agencies across the region.
