@crossmr your post is offtopic and meaningless to the discussion. If you want to cry go do it somewhere else.

@fransgelden
from the way you write it seems you don’t understand what frequency is.

1. Frequency means how often on average a chosen spot on the line will be passed by a vehicle.
2. It will be exactly the same for every point on the line so it doesn’t matter which point you pick for measurements. It may be first stop, it may be the last one or it may be a point somewhere between the stops.
3. Frequency is also equal to how long it takes a single vehicle to make a fool line loop divided by number of vehicles on the line. So if you have a single vehicle on the line and only then the frequency will be equal to how long it takes for the vehicle to make a full loop.
4. Frequency is not how often a vehicle will pass a stop.
