Abstract

Investigation of the performance of synchronous and quasi-synchronous network control policies proposed for area-wide high capacity Dual-Mode and Personal Rapid Transit systems. Performance is analyzed from the user point-of-view in terms of the expected travel time delay associated with each policy. Using an idealization of the network layout and uniform demand for service, analytic expressions for the expected delay are derived for each policy in terms of fundamental parameters (line spacing, trip rate, trip length distribution, maneuver region). Comparisons of the performance of each policy are presented in parametric form.
