Abstract

To reduce passenger congestion during morning rush hour, railway companies in the Tokyo metropolitan area have increased the number of trains. On the other hand, once a train exceeds a dwell time due to sudden events such as passengers rushing onto a train, passengers agglomerating in specific cars and doors, objects getting caught in doors etc., delays propagate to subsequent trains quickly. To evaluate daily train transport stability and countermeasures against train delays, a train travel time simulation model is needed. However, it has been difficult so far to replicate the occurrence of sudden events and the fluctuations in passenger demand. In this paper, we use detailed data based on dwell time structure and on-site inspections to construct a train travel time simulator. In addition, we evaluate several case-studies of timetable adjustments and passenger demand variations.
