In recent years, the Holdsville Transportation Authority (HTA) has noted consistent delays
on its Holdsville-River Valley bus, which runs from downtown Holdsville to the suburb of
River Valley. In order to decrease the commuting time from Holdsville to River Valley, the
HTA recently eliminated the James Street stop on the Holdsville-River Valley line.
However, data show that the average commuting time from Holdsville to River Valley has
actually increased since the elimination of the stop. Which of the following provides the best
explanation for the increase in commuting time from Holdsville to River Valley?
A) Almost all of the commuters who previously used the James Street stop now use the adjacent
Green Street stop, causing overcrowding and excessive boarding and de-boarding delays at
the Green Street stop.
b) A small percentage of the commuters who previously used the James Street stop now use
alternate modes of transportation to commute from Holdsville to River Valley.
c) 90% of Holdsville-River Valley commuters were in favor of eliminating the James Street
d) The Holdsville-River Valley bus route runs along River Street, which is always congested
with heavy automobile traffic.
e) The Johnstown bus line, another line operated by the HTA, has also experienced an increase
in average commuting time since eliminating a stop on its route.
