PASSENGER SERVICE DEPENDABILITY ASSESSMENT
For automated guideway transit systems an increasing concern is the probability of passenger delay and its relationship to system availability. For a loop configuration a particular reference response to a failure is hypothesized. For this reference response, the delay probability equation is approximated simply as "lack of availability" divided by "lack of passenger saturation." Alternate failure responses are then placed in perspective by scaling relative to the reference.
