COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF DYNAMIC SHUTTLE SYSTEM AND THE EXISTING HIGH SPEED GROUND TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS

The dynamic shuttle system treated in this paper consists of main line trains traveling at a fixed speed. Passengers are shuttled to and from these fixed speed trains by means of shuttle cars. The shuttle cars can provide local service and thus alleviate the need for stations along the route of the main line trains. The main line trains have a peak volume, depending upon operating speed which is an order of magnitude greater than existing modes. They provide high speed service to travelers in the belt traversed by the trains.
