Definition: Measures how closely the service ran
to the schedule, as experienced by the customer. Departure is considered
on-time, if made between 0 and 5 minutes after scheduled departure
time. 30 seconds are added to both ends of the 0 to 5 minute interval to
capture deviations between the various time-tracking devices. Many
factors affect bus on-time performance. Some are within MARTA’s control
(e.g., mechanical or driver problems). Others, such as traffic or
unplanned detours, are not. Regardless of cause, MARTA strives to work
