Path Travel Time Calculation Method of Urban Rail Transit Path Based on Given Time

With the features of large capacity, faster speeds, and convenience, urban rail transit becomes the first choice for large cities to solve traffic congestion. Under network operations and "a ticket transfer" of urban rail transit, passengers can choose different paths between two stations; although, due to passenger flow crowding, and different train plans in lines, travel time of paths between the same OD changes greatly over time. Therefore, calculating the theoretical travel time of paths between each OD reasonably and accurately has important practical significance, which is useful to guide passenger flow, optimize train operation plans, and improve the level of management. In this paper, the actual travel time of passengers was statistically analyzed using historical passenger data of a single path with no transfers along with the corresponding train plans, and the boarding regularity of passengers at each station. This method is expected calculate travel time of each path at given time according to train timetables. Finally, an example is given using data from Beijing's Subway system.
