Study on the Integration Plan of Weihai’s Urban and Suburban Bus System Based on the Operational Efficiency Analysis
At present, the fragmented development of urban and suburban bus system is facing many problems and difficult to adapt to the requirements of urban-rural integration in China. In this paper, the urban and suburban bus route network and passenger volume distribution characteristics were analyzed, the operational efficiency of the two system was compared based on the case study of Weihai; the principal factors that influence the operational efficiency were further studied; and finally, the integration plan of urban-suburban bus system as well as the suggestions on its implementation were proposed.
