LABOR SAVINGS IN A DUAL MODE TRANSIT SYSTEM
Dual Mode Transit Systems will be less labor intensive than conventional bus operations because each vehicle will make a large percentage of every trip on an automated guideway. To determine the labor savings achievable, data from the 1971 Milwaukee County Dual Mode Systems Study were used as inputs to the RUCUS programs to produce realistic driver schedules. It was found that a practical saving of 58 percent would be obtainable for a case in which the theoretical saving was 66 percent.
