Distance from Multiple Entry Stations
"Multiple Entry-Stations in Question"
The entry-stations in question are the top nine most frequented entries displayed in Exhibit 1. In identifying the ‘black-lined’ exits as destinations whose riders were influenced by the fare change, I treated the nine entries as one. However, the distance between a ‘black-lined’ exit and each of the nine entries did not always fall in a range subject to the larger than expected discounts.
So the rider counts I compared from [6:54–6:59 entries] and [7:00–7:05 entries] would have been watered down by rider patterns arising from those faced with “normal” percent discounts – Only making it more difficult to identify the pattern of delayed ridership to these destinations.
