EFFECTS OF RANDOMNESS IN VEHICLE DWELL TIMES ON THE THROUGHPUT OF AUTOMATED FIXED GUIDEWAY TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM STATIONS WITH MULTIPLE LOADING POSITIONS

VEHICLE DWELL TIMES ARE THE MOST UNPREDICTABLE PARAMETERS OF STATION OPERATIONS BECAUSE OF OCCASIONAL PASSENGER INTERVENTION. THIS PAPER PRESENTS THE RESULTS OF AN ANALYSIS OF STATION CAPACITY FOR AUTOMATED FIXED GUIDEWAY TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS WHERE VEHICLE DWELL TIMES IN THE STATIONS ARE RANDOM. THE PURPOSE OF THE ANALYSIS IS TO FACILITATE DECISION-MAKING REGARDING SELECTION OF THE LEAST COST STATION DESIGN TO MEET A PARTICULAR CAPACITY REQUIREMENT. DECISIONS ON THIS MATTER INVOLVE SIMULTANEOUS CONSIDERATION OF THE TOTAL NUMBER OF LOADING POSITIONS IN EACH STATION AS WELL AS THEIR ALTERNATIVE ARRANGEMENTS, I.E., IN SERIES, IN PARALLEL, OR IN SOME SERIES-PARALLEL COMBINATIONS. /HRB/
