This research involved the design of an off-peak hour routing methodology for a major, non-CBD, retail center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The purpose was to develop, through the flexible-fixed system concept, a technique which allows off-peak hour bus routing to be designed to meet off-peak travel demands associated with an activity center. The technique developed to accomplish this purpose was based on the concept of providing transit service to the trade area of retail center. The premise of this routing scheme is that during the off-peak hour, trans it should take on a local style of service providing mobility oriented to the types and locations of trips occurring during this period. The technique developed contains four basic segments: selection of activity center(s); identification of trip making characteristics to the activity center during the off-peak hours by an on-site survey; identification of spatially significant characteristics of the population and its travel behavior; and the establishment of service levels for route design.
