Sequential sampling procedures are applied to determine if an automatic guided transit (AGT) system meets its reliability requirements. The attribute of interest is the vehicle trip time, so the system reliability is measured in terms of greatest interest to the passenger: schedule reliability. The proposed approach is statistically sound and relatively simple to implement. The approach permits the system to develop outages affecting vehicle schedules provided such delays are not too frequent nor result in delays in excess of those specified.
