Abstract/Summary

The main objective of this study is to assess the passenger demand and supply of jeepneys in Baguio City. Jeepney is a very unique public transport mode not only in its vehicle type but also in ways it is operated and utilized by passengers. However, there are issues that need to be addressed regarding jeepney operation in Baguio City including; (i) inadequacy of jeepneys during peak hours influences the waiting time of passengers and underserved areas, (ii) improper loading and unloading of jeepneys affect limited road capacity, and (iii) gap between passenger demand and jeepney supply. Volume counts, frequency survey, boarding and alighting surveys, origin destination surveys and questionnaire surveys were conducted to determine the factors affecting the service operation of jeepneys. F-test and T-test were used in evaluating the questionnaire surveys regarding opinion on stop location and transport service and infrastructure characteristics. The Route Measured Capacity Method was then used to determine and evaluate traffic data and validated using EMME software. Results indicate that most jeepney routes are undersupply due to the increasing passenger demand. However, poor loading and unloading conditions, limited public transport facilities and services affected the service operation of jeepneys. The study therefore is calling for a balance state of demand and supply of jeepneys in improving the service operation of jeepneys.
