Passenger flow and station facilities modelling for metro station layout design
Tsang, C.W. & Ho, T.K. (2004) Passenger flow and station facilities modelling for metro station layout design. In 4th International Conference on Traffic and Transportation Studies, 2-4 August 2004, Dalian, China.
This paper presents the simulation model development of passenger flow in a metro station. The model allows studies of passenger flow in stations with different layouts and facilities, thus providing valuable information, such as passenger flow and density of passenger at critical locations and passenger-handling facilities within a station, to the operators. The adoption of the concept of Petri nets in the simulation model is discussed. Examples are provided to demonstrate its application to passenger flow analysis, train scheduling and the testing of alternative station layouts.
