INFLUENCE OF THE SIZE AND NUMBER OF VEHICLES ON THE PERFORMANCE AND SERVICE QUALITY OF GROUP RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEMS

The size of vehicles investigated ranges from 4 to 40 seats, the number of vehicles used is between 240 and 8. A demand-activated, fixed-route service was simulated. Parameters, such as waiting time and the passenger's trip velocity are used to characterize the user aspect, and such criteria as load factor of line and vehicles, vehicle kilometers, headway between consecutive vehicles and rate of vehicle stops at stations are employed as measures of the system's operating performance.
