CABIN SIZES AND PATTERN OF OPERATION OF A NEW PUBLIC TRANSPORT SYSTEM

KABINENGROESSE UND BETRIEBSABLAUF NEUER NAHVERKEHRSSYSTEME

Firms developing new public transport systems tend to provide cabins with greatly varying carrying capacities for the same ranges of application. The cabin size has, however, a considerable influence on the important parameters of the operating process, such as for example, the waiting time and the travel speed of the passengers as well as the loading and operating capacity of the system. The influence of the cabin sizes on the operating pattern was studied by means of the simulation of a large cabin railway using two different networks. In addition to the cabin sizes other input data, such as the number of cabins, the type of station, the cabin speed, the method of operating and the loading were all varied. On the basis of data obtained from the simulation, a new method was developed by means of which it is possible to derive an optimum cabin size for particular cases of application. The journey speed and the vehicle-related operating costs were derived as optimization values.
