This research explores the application of archived data from Automated
Data Collection Systems (ADCS) to transport planning with a focus on bus
passenger travel behavior, including Origin-Destination (OD) inference,
using London as a case study. It demonstrates the feasibility and ease
of applying trip-chaining to infer bus passenger OD from smart card
transactions and Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) data and is the first
known attempt to validate the results by comparing them with manual
passenger survey data. With the inferred OD matrices, the variations of
weekday and weekend bus route OD patterns are examined for planning
purposes. Moreover, based on the inferred OD matrices and the AVL data,
alighting times for bus passengers also can be estimated. Bus journey
stages, therefore, can easily be linked. By comparing the interchange
time and the connecting bus route's headway, it provides a way to
evaluate bus connections.
