WAITING TIMES IN GUIDED TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS

LES TEMPS D'ATTENTE DANS LES TRANSPORTS EN SITE PROPRE

The paper analyzes the random and transient components of time losses in waiting and intermediate stops of guided transportation means, in terms of the headway between successive vehicles. Waiting time is radically reduced with very small headways in stations (a few seconds between vehicles). Eliminating all intermediate stops results in such a constraint upon the traffic on a single line that the waiting time in stations increases much more than the time saved on the stops. The operation is much improved by keeping a few intermediate stops on each route.
