A SIMULATION MODEL FOR PLANNING DUAL-MODE SYSTEMS

The adequacy of the existing techniques in performing the tasks related to the planning of dual-mode transit systems is evaluated and a new model to enhance the analytical capability of the planners is presented. The network analysis and operations analysis phases of the transportation planning process are examined and the limited scope of analysis with programs of the UMTA Transportation Planning Systems (UTPS) is pointed out. A new simulation model for dual-mode systems is described which incorporates the demand responsive characteristics of the system and provides an additional tool in operations analysis. The model which is based on several assumptions, is applied (for illustrative purposes) to a hypothetical problem.
