CALCULATION OF DEPARTURE FREQUENCY FOR AN URBAN BUS LINE

CALCULO DE FRECUENCIAS DE SALIDA PARA UNA RUTA DE AUTOBUSES URBANOS

THE OPERATION OF BUS LINES PRESUPPOSES FIXED DEPARTURE FREQUENCIES DEPENDING ON THE TIME OF DAY. THIS TIMETABLE TAKES INTO ACCOUNT PASSENGER ARRIVALS AT BUS STOPS. FROM A MINIMUM WAITING CRITERION AND A MINIMUM NUMBER OF PASSENGERS WITHOUT A SERVICE, FREQUENCIES ARE CALCULATED, WHICH CAN VARY ACCORDING TO THE PERIOD ANALYSED. A SIMULATION MODEL IS USED THAT UTILIZES POISSON-TYPE ARRIVALS AT BUS STOPS. FOR THE COVERING ABSTRACT SEE IRRD ABSTRACT NO 108676.
