GONZALEZ QUIROGA, Heber Guillermo; SEGURA PEREZ, Esther  and  GOMEZ GALLARDO, Wulfrano. Demand for Mexico City´s Public Transportation Analysis. Epistemus (Sonora) [online]. 2022, vol.16, n.33, pp.7-15.  Epub May 19, 2023. ISSN 2007-8196.

One of the most demanded services nowadays is the public transportation, and it is known that it is the second most fearful place for the user after an ATM on the street. Therefore, in this study, possible variables are determined in relation to the user's perception of the efficiency of the operation of a government concessioned public transportation system that vary the number of trips in a south of Mexico City’s corridor. Multiple linear regression models were used, and it was found that some days of the week are highly significant, that the demand is inelastic to the price of the service, that the variation of the demand is quantified according to the day of the week and how it is affected by insecurity and accidents issues.

Keywords : traffic; perception of service; public transportation; multiple linear regression.
