The project team attempted to obtain broad representation, including agencies that were rural; small, medium, and large urban; and Canadian. 2 Operations model refers to whether the agency directly operates (DO) or purchases transportation (PT) or both (DO&PT), based on data from the National Transit Database. 3 Peak vehicles were obtained from the National Transit Database. 4 Schedule creation options were self-reported by survey respondents; transit agencies could select more than one option. Agency means that the transit agency creates transit schedules using in-house resources and staff. Service provider means that the transit agency uses a contracted service provider to create transit schedules. Scheduling firm means that the transit agency uses the services of a scheduling firm or other third party (not the service provider) to create transit schedules. Other means the transit agency has some other arrangement to create transit schedules. 5 GO Transit is classified as a Canadian respondent in this table; however, in most of the reportâs analyses, GO Transit is placed into the Large Urban agency type.
