NUMBER AND DESIGN OF METRO-VEHICLES: A COMMERCIAL CHOICE

AANTAL EN INRICHTING VAN METROVOERTUIGEN: EEN COMMERCIELE KEUZE

In selecting new interior design for the underground railway trains layout of seating, high or low occupancy are criteria to consider. A large seating capacity per vehicle reduces the likelihood that no seats will be available but increases the chances of a passenger being unable to enter because the vehicle is full. The speed will also be lower because there are fewer doors, by which the metro has to make a longer stop. Only by selecting the interior design simultaneously with the number of vehicles available, the average number of passengers during peak hours, an optimum choice can be made.
