Hmm. For "increase speed":1 "Does it accelerate quickly out of stations and decelerate quickly into them, and go fast in the middle?"Yes -> 2No -> 32 "Are there lots of passengers getting on and off at all the intermediate stations?"Yes -> 6No -> Operate express service3 "Is it fast between stations but accelerates and decelerates slowly?"Yes -> Get trains with better accelerationNo -> 44 "Is it slow in some specific sections but not in others?"Yes -> Speed up those tracksNo -> 55 "Are the trains going as fast as they can?"Yes -> Get faster trainsNo -> Speed up all tracks6 "Are there lots of passengers commuting as far out as you?"Yes -> Build a new express / bypass lineNo -> Move closer to downtown!
"Increase ridership" is the HARD flowchart. I don't think this one is fully understood by anyone.
The flowchart would only be different for buses by replacing "train" with "bus" and "track" with "road"...except that you'd have to add a section about traffic interference from cars. 0. "Is the slowness due to traffic?"Yes -> "Get exclusive right-of way by painting bus lanes, laying tracks, whatever"No -> "See Other Flowchart"
You got a crazy sysadmin, Jonathan. Can you see the picture if I put it on Picasa Web?
