EFFECTS OF RANDOMNESS IN VEHICLE DWELL TIMES ON THE THROUGHPUT OF AUTOMATED FIXED GUIDEWAY TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM STATIONS WITH MULTIPLE LOADING POSITIONS

Vehicle dwell times are perhaps the most unpredictable parameters of stations operations because of occasional passengers intervention. This paper reports on an investigation involving theoretical and Monte Carlo techniques to ascertain the sensitivity of station throughput to randomness in swell times. Alternative configurations of vehicle loading positions, e.g., loading positions in parallel, in series, or in a series-parallel combination, are considered in an effort to rank the configurations by their associated performance levels. /Author/TRRL/
