DEVELOPMENT OF FAST/SLOW TRANSPORT MODE EVALUATION MODEL CONSIDERING PASSENGER LABOUR AND ITS APPLICATION

Passenger effort has been neglected in the conventional transport demand and modal split models. The author develops a single-line traffic analysis in which a cost/benefit approach incorporates in traffic distribution not only trip time and fare but also the passenger effort required in terms of train transfers and the crowdedness of trains. A problem of track expansion between Tokyo and Takao is examined. Scheduling and track capacity are discussed in terms of express stops, frequencies of local and express trains, and tracks assigned for specific types of services.
