... 9-4 The "unlinked trip" system of reporting transit usage, which counts each boarding whether at the start of a trip or at a transfer point, does not cause problems for interpretation of most scheduling and frequency changes. It does, however, severely complicate evaluation of those timed transfer strategies which involve introduction of routes which terminate at the timed transfer "pulse point," as compared to use of through routing at the "pulse point." Any action which forces transfers increases the unlinked trip count without necessarily increasing the number of transit passengers.
