SIMULATION OF PASSENGER MOVEMENTS THROUGH A TRANSIT STATION

The simulation model being developed is a discrete-system, event-oriented representation of the movement of individual passengers through a transit station. The model is stochastic in nature with the entities of the system being the individual passengers whose movement through various activities in the station give rise to the events which drive the simulation. Station activity subsystems, such as the ticketing areas, passenger movement areas and platforms are represented by links, nodes and areas. The outputs from the model are Time Impedance Measures (e.g. Walking Times, Time spent in queue, and Total In-Station Time) and Occupancy or Density Levels (sq. ft. per person) in the movement and queueing areas of the station.
