THE SIGNIFICANCE OF STATION STOP TIMES IN URBAN RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEMS

DIE BEDEUTUNG DER HALTEZEIT IM STADTSCHNELLBAHNBETRIEB

Station stop times in urban rapid transit systems can be divided into operating and traffic components. Their proper dimensioning calls for comprehensive analytic and synthetic studies of time and sequence for the method of train dispatching used, likewise extensive traffic surveys to provide information on the entry and exit situation at the stations. Also to be considered are the constructional features of both vehicle and platform, a knowledge of which allows passenger exchange times to be determined. In order to avoid changes in timetable frequency during the day's working, the station stop times at rush hours provide a basis for arranging the timetable. The author illustrates his views with a calculated example.
