CARATTERISTICHE E PRESTAZIONI DEISISTEMI DI TRASPORTO

THUS RESEARCH ATTEMPTS TO ANALIZE THE PERFORMANCE AND COSTS CHARACTERISTICS OF FIXED RIGHT OF WAY MASS URBAN TRANSPORT SYSTEMS, SUITABLE FOR SATISFYING PART OF THE MOBILITY REQUEST PRESENTLY DIRECTED TOWARDS CONVENTIONAL SURFACE TRANSPORT MEANS (BUSES, TRAMS). THE OBJECTIVE IS THAT OF IDENTIFYING, THROUGH THE DEFINITION AND COMPARISON OF ECONOMIC AND SERVICE PARAMETERS, EVALUATION TECHNIQUES WHICH WILL ASSIST THE CHOICE TOWARDS THE SOLUTION WHICH BEST SATISFIES THE SPECIFIC DEMANDS. THE PRESENT ARTICLE SUMMARIZES THE RESULTS OF A FIRST PHASE OF THE RESEARCH IN WHICH, STARTING FROM THE BASIC RELATIONSHIPS WHICH CHARACTERIZE THE SYSTEM (VEHICLE CAPACITY, MAXIMUM SPEEDS, ETC) AND SERVICE PERFORMANCE (TRAFFIC POTENTIAL, TOTAL ROUND TIME, ETC), THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE VARIOUS PARAMETERS ARE SHOWN.
