Overview: This webinar (the first in a series of six) provided an overview of the contents of the Transit Capacity and Quality of Service Manual (TCQSM) and how the material can be applied to a variety of transit and transportation planning, operations, and design applications. The webinar covered:
The manual’s purpose, audience, and potential applications
Key concepts used throughout the manual, including transit capacity, speed, reliability, and quality of service concepts
Contents of each chapter, with a particular focus on Chapters 2 and 3 (mode, service, and operations concepts), which will not be covered by other webinars in the series.
This webinar helped participants identify which portions of the manual and its companion material (e.g., computational spreadsheets) are most relevant to their work. Other webinars in the series covered individual capacity and quality of service chapters in depth.
