Pass-Ups

A pass-up occurs when a bus is too full to allow any additional passengers to board a bus. Passengers are “passed-up” and must wait at the bus stop for the next scheduled bus.

This data is recorded by the bus’s on-board computer whenever a bus operator pushes a button to log when either a bus is full and passengers have been passed-up at a bus stop, or when a wheelchair user cannot be accommodated, either due to the bus being too full, or due to both wheelchair positions on the bus being occupied. The data is updated daily.

The recorded location of the pass-up corresponds to where the bus was located when the bus operator pressed the button to log the pass-up, and it may not always match precisely to the bus stop where the actual pass-up occurred.

Full Bus Pass-Ups by Month

This chart shows the number of pass-ups that have been recorded within each calendar month since 2011.

Pass-ups occur most often in September of each year, as students begin classes, following new schedules, often at new schools and universities. Passenger loads are at their highest in the first few weeks of classes, until everyone learns their new routines and figures out the best way to get to class. A similar spike tends to occur in January, when similar travel patterns are followed.
