Abstract: The measurement of transit performance represents a very useful tool for ensuring continuous increase of the quality of the delivered transit services, and for allocating resources among competing transit agencies. Transit service quality can be evaluated by subjective measures based on passengers’ perceptions, and objective measures represented by disaggregate performance measures expressed as numerical values, which must be compared with fixed standards or past performances. The proposed research work deals with service quality evaluation based on objective measures; specifically, an extensive overview and an interpretative review of the objective indicators until investigated by researchers are proposed. The final aim of the work is to give a review as comprehensive as possible of the objective indicators, and to provide some suggestions for the selection of the most appropriate indicators for evaluating a transit service aspect.
