Coordination and Optimization of Connecting Trains in a Transfer Station of Urban Mass Transit

The management and organization of a transfer station is a key characteristic and plays a decisive role in urban mass transit. This paper focuses on minimizing the transfer waiting time, so as to optimize the issue of synchronized and coordinated train connecting in a transfer station. In addition, three different influencing factors are summarized, including transfer forms, walking distance in the station and congestion degree of passenger flow. The relationships between these factors and transfer time are also revealed. Finally, this paper develops a model to obtain the minimum waiting time of transfer passengers in all of the transfer directions, laying a foundation of coordinating arrival time and departure time.
