Take a piece of paper that is two days wide; you slide it back and forth along the histogram until you find the pair of adjacent days that gives you the largest probability, as in Figure 18.1. So a particular origin- destination pair may have a two-day percent of 85%, which means that the percentage of travel time in the best contiguous two days, in this case three and four days, was 85%. In the case of a high-quality intermodal service, the two-day percent might well be 100%. Figure 18.1 4
