Ensuring reliable rail transit services is an important task for transit agencies. The effects of various terminal configurations on reliability of services were studied. The results could also be used for short-turning infrastructure. Short turning is a widespread measure to restore service after major disturbances; in many rail networks, additional switches are constructed to enable short turning. Calculations of the average delay per vehicle, regarding three main types of terminals, show the… CONTINUE READING
