A COMPARISON OF SEVERAL TECHNIQUES FOR SIMULATING BUS ROUTES

This report outlines the basis of simulation models of bus routes and the ways in which they may be used. It then compares several such models and the ways in which they have been used to represent various aspects of routes. It is found that although the models have many similarities, there are important differences, particularly concerning the movements of passengers, and it is often not clear which method of representation is preferable. Few models seem to have been validated to any great extent, and this has prevented a detailed assessment being made of the realism of the models. Suggestions are made about the features of the bus route which should be considered for representation in a model. (A) /TRRL/
