SIMULATION OF A NEW CONCEPT IN SHORT DISTANCE PASSENGER TRANSPORT SYSTEMS

SIMULATION VON PERSONENTRANSPORTEN MIT NEUARTIGEN NAHVERKEHRSSYSTEMEN

A cabin with a capacity of 18 persons was used for the simulation programme which is based on a normal timetable (vehicles stop at all stations), express vehicles and a community taxi service. A circular route, a double-track line and a Y-shaped network were examined. Consideration was also given to the number of passengers travelling between several large cities in Federal Germany. The simulation programme makes is possible to evaluate the attractiveness and the productivity of new cabin-type railways particularly as regards travel and stopping times.
