CABTRACK STUDIES. TRAVEL PATTERNS AND COSTS FOR CABTRACK NETWORKS IN A SIMPLE MODEL SCENARIO

The estimated capital and operating costs of the fundamental Cabtrack network subsystems--cabs running on plain track, intersections, cabstops--are derived as a function of the traffic flows in these subsystems. The overall operating costs of a number of regular rectangular layouts of Cabtrack networks are then derived for the special case of an infinite network operating in a hypothetical scenario with a uniform travel density over its entire area. A method of optimising the mesh spacing is described, and examples given of the effect on costs of varying some of the trip-making parameters.
