Abstract

The stochastic nature of the train standing times at metro stations directly influence the minimum operational headway that can be sustained over longer period of time as well as the possible delays on the line. Therefore, any analysis of the performance of a metro line by a simulation of its operation is closely related to the problem of modelling the station dwell times. The model presented here has been based on the data collected from the Bloor metro station in Toronto, Canada. Metro trains were videotaped during two-hour study period and data were obtained on the time needed for boarding/alighting of different number of passengers per train door. The results of the statistical analysis have shown that a family of Gamma distributions with parameters that are function on the number of passengers per door appear to be a good model to represent the passenger boarding and alighting times.
