In the case of multiple time-points, observations must be made at each time-point and any holding time enroute deducted from the total, again with the stipulation that time not be killed between time-points. Thus cooperation of the vehicle operators is required in running without killing time enroute, in not leaving time-points early, and in leaving time points as soon as passenger processing is complete, if running late. Regardless of the above, and except in pre-booked or large headway routes, the observations are strictly valid only if the vehicle is following a vehicle that was run exactly on schedule.
