The Basic Steps in Building and Reading a Queuing Diagram CE221 – Fundamentals of Transportation Engineering A queuing diagram can be viewed as a plot of cumulative arrivals and cumulative departures over time.

For each point in time, there are two vehicle totals (two counts) One is a total count of vehicles that have arrived to be serviced.
