DYNAMIC EVENING PEAK ASSIGNMENT MODEL FOR CONGESTED RADIAL TRANSIT NETWORKS

A key element in urban transit planning is the ability to predict how passengers will behave for a certain fixed level of supply. This problem is generally called the passenger assignment problem. This paper examines passenger assignment on a congested radial transit network. The authors use the varying capacity concept introduced by Saidi et al, 1994, to address the case of the evening peak dynamic assignment problem. In this approach, the comfort capacity corresponds to the perception that users will have of the load limit. The authors first apply the approach to an isolated line and then extend it to common lines on a radial network. This paper presents the results of this approach as applied to a typical congested radial network, that of Tunis in Tunisia.
