THEORETICAL CAPACITY AND SPACE REQUIREMENTS OF HEAVY RAIL AND BUS RAPID TRANSIT

An investigation has been made to establish the theoretical capacity of an undirectional single track heavy rail transit service as offered by the South African Railways and a similar study has been made for an exclusive undirectional single bus-way. This information is used to examine the spatial requirements per passenger for these two modes of transport for an open section right of way, an intermediate halt and a terminal, and to subsequently determine the effectiveness of these two high density urban passenger systems.
