No, not correct.
The slide says "... buses travel faster due to... off-board fare collection..."
It is not comparing just running times, as if you could just drive a car during that time period and replicate the results.
I am sure that they are using the boarding time saved at Myrtle, but I am willing to bet that they are also using the boarding time savings at the stops at each end of the segment.
Because if I want to present the best case of success for my proposal, I am going to squeeze those boundaries to be from just as the bus stops at the Jamaica Ave stop until it leaves the Metropolitan Ave stop. That way I get to count time savings from more stops and stops more popular than Myrtle.
So go back and look at the slide thinking about stop-drive-stop-drive-stop, instead of just drive-drive-drive or drive-stop-drive. Now those numbers don't seem so crazy.
Stephen, do you have the ability to use Bus Time data from before the Jamaica Ave stop to after the Metropolitan Ave stop?
