GENERALIZED DEPARTURE TIME OF USERS OF MASS TRANSIT SYSTEMS HAVING ARBITRARY OPERATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS

Generalized Departure Time is a response function of travellers who are appointed the place and time for arrival, and GDT gives their departure time as a function of the operational properties of transit system. The validity of such a concept is to be verified by the actual application in various cases because GDT is a "constructive concept" to be conjectured and the way of conjecture is not forgiven. This paper describes the method to estimate GDT of mass transit passengers in order to serve such verification. It also reports that commuters' GDTs estimated in Hiroshima and Tokyo are quite alike.
