Description of a mathematical model of an intra-airport rapid transit system designed to transport passengers and baggage at the new Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. The proposed simulation model moves trains and passengers over a guideway by processing time as an independent variable. All events such as train and passenger movement are associated with a specific simulation time and are processed at that time. At a particular simulation time, a type of event to occur in the future and the time of occurrence are determined. When the simulation time is incremented to the event occurrence time the event is processed.
