WAITING TIME AND OCCUPANCY IN SYSTEMS

This paper presents the results of computer simulations of various forms of people-moving (transit) systems, with particular attention to travel and waiting components of total trip time. The formulations permit a heavier psychological weighting for the latter in comparing the various forms of service. Service options studied are: scheduled and unscheduled; all-stop, skip-stop, intermediate-stop, and non-stop from origin to destination. Comparisons are also made for a wide range of headway values and vehicle/train capacities.
