New schedules are up, and the devil is in the details for the 20 layover project. Looking over the schedule, it appears that the 20 won't be taking layovers at Georgia and Richards during all time periods. On the weekday schedule, arrival and departure times are the same at Georgia/Richards during the AM rush hour. The trip arriving at 8:51 leaves at 8:53, 8:56 at 9:00, 9:04 at 9:08, then starting at the 9:10 arrival all buses get 5 minutes of recovery time throughout the day. But, the layover times start shrinking with the 4:56pm arrival, which gets 4 minutes layover leaving at 5:00, then the 5:03 arrival leaves at 5:06. Starting with the 5:13pm arrival, all trips once again have the same arrival and departures. The Saturday and Sunday schedules have similar lengths of time for when the layover is in effect. I think it is acceptable to have buses not taking layover during all time periods, particularly during early morning and late night when ridership and traffic is lighter and reliability is not such a big issue. Even the lack layover in the AM rush hour is acceptable, given that the AM rush is better behaved and has less traffic delay than the PM rush hour. However, I feel that the layover stops way too early in the PM, before PM rush hour is even over. Given that there is still a high volume of traffic in the early evening, I would think the Downtown layover should be in effect until 8 or 9 pm. This is admittedly anecdotal, but my experience as a regular transit user is that some of the worst reliability issues occur between 6 and 7 pm, when traffic volumes are still at near peak levels, but there is less road capacity as on street parking is permitted again and bus lanes are not in effect.
