Abstract: Transit Trip Time is an important factor of transport system because it affects the efficiency of system and service attractiveness. If a transit trip time is appropriate it attracts more commuters and increases the commuters' satisfaction. The objective of this study is to develop a regression model that provides better understanding of factors that affects the total trip time on the route. After the development of regression model, the bus stops on the selected routes were consolidated based on mean/acceptable walking distance using ArcGIS software. The study was conducted on two selected urban bus routes of Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC). Field data collected includes arrivals/departure times, delays, average speed and distance between the bus stops, walking distance of the commuter from bus stop to their destination, age, sex, type of employment, purpose of trip, mode of travel, walking travel time and income of commuter. For development of regression model, dwell time, delays and distance between the bus stops was taken as input data. Developed model was validated and tested using GPS (Global Positioning Data) collected from field study. Finally, the results indicate that consolidation of bus stops could improve the travel time and save total travel time cost.
