(a)    You must collect the required data items separately for each one-way vehicle trip in your service unit. 

(1)   If your service unit is a round-trip bus trip, for example, it has two one-way vehicle trips.

(b)   The following data items are required for each one-way vehicle trip:

(1)   the number of people who boarded at each stop,

(2)   the number of people who alighted at each stop,

(3)   the distance between any pair of consecutive stops at which boardings or alightings occurred,

(4)   the number of people onboard the vehicle between any pair of consecutive stops,

(5)   the number of people who stayed on from the previous one-way vehicle trip, and

(6)   the number of people who remained on the vehicle at the last stop.
