Transit studies have shown that the minimum frequency needed to make public transit feasible is one bus every 15 minutes, with one bus every 10 minutes being close to optimal. So why are so many public transit systems, including systems in highly populated locations such as Broward County, Florida (population 2 million) still running buses only every 30 minutes throughout the entire day?

Also, how do you see electric buses and autonomous vehicles impacting public transit? Might we see a larger number of smaller buses running more frequently?
