Simulation of large complex systems is a method of evaluating various combinations of system components. This paper describes the use of interactive simulation as a method to analyze various operating policies for command and control of dual-mode transit systems. A detailed discussion is presented in the analysis of various operational concepts. These concepts include the analysis of alternative vehicle control logic, failsafe headway safety systems, centralized versus distributed control, and on- and off-guideway vehicle management techniques. /Author/
