A SIMULATION OF COMMUTER RAIL POSSIBILITIES

A simple model of commuter rail line supply and demand characteristics is discussed. By varying assumptions and the nature of the rail service proposed, the resulting energy cost, and travel time impacts can be analyzed. The model is also useful in exploring fare structures and other policies. An existing rail line in the North Central Texas region is used as a case study.
