TRIP AVAILABILITY FOR RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEMS

Passenger acceptance of mass transit system depends on predictable travel times. The major sources of travel time uncertainty are passenger wait delays due to system loading and travel time delays due to failures. The second of these effects is treated analytically. Travel time distributions are developed for a typical automated group rapid transit network with a passenger load of 14,000 passengers per hour. In addition, an approximate availability solution is presented and compared to the analytic solution.
