Things have been a bit quiet here, but fear not, new postings are in the works.
Right now, I am hard at work on data for the Queen route for December 2007 and January 2008, and I hope to publish information from this analysis by the weekend or early next week.
December 2007 was much worse, as we all know, than December 2006, and the charts from 2007 show the effects of the bad weather.
I have not yet turned to January’s data to see if there was some visible change in operating strategy regarding short-turns following the public meetings in December. As usual, each new set of data brings its own wrinkles, and I have been further streamlining the programs that digest the data. December is the guinea pig, and when I turn to January, it should be a fast process to generate another month’s set of charts.
I know that a few of you are waiting patiently (or impatiently — you know who you are) for this information. These things take time, and I’m doing the work in odd moments when I’m not embroiled in blogging about labour relations, or attending and reviewing films, or various other pursuits some of which actually don’t have a thing to do with transit!
Updated: I now have the details of the service changes taking effect this weekend and will summarize them likely on Saturday.
