EasyChair Preprint no. 348

22 pagesDate: July 15, 2018


   Urban public transit has an essential and active role for sustainable and balanced socio-economic and environmental development. This study investigated the performance of urban public transit services in two major cities in Jordan, including Amman and Irbid cities. Accessibility, mobility, productivity, punctuality, and waiting time of public transit were investigated in the study. Data were obtained from the Land Transport Regulatory Commission of Jordan, Municipalities, and field surveys.

    The accessibility was found to be relatively low in the selected cities. Also, the results indicated that the mobility and waiting time for public transit was found to be marginally comparable with that in developed countries. In contrast, the productivity of public transit was very high compared with the productivity of transit in developed countries.
