Assessment of Ticket Reservation Posts on Train Platforms: A Pedestrian Simulation Study Using Platforms

This paper shows the applicability of the microscopic pedestrian simulation tool NOMAD. In the case study presented in this paper, NOMAD has been applied to assess the effects of ticket reservation posts on the platform on passenger flows. Simulation results are show in this paper for Schiphol Station, but the presented conclusions have been drawn based on simulation results of all scenarios. Various scenarios have been compared with different amounts of passengers using the ticket reservation posts and different service times. Also, the optimal amount and location of ticket reservations have been investigated. A number of assessment criteria have been calculated using the simulation results, which resulted in an objective and quantitative comparison of the scenarios and custom made conclusions and recommendations.
