Simple Capacity Analysis Question: Given a pie-shaped sector corridor serving a CBD served by a single transit line, what will be the peak passenger flow at the CBD? Nigel Wilson 2 1.258J/11.541J/ESD.226J Spring 2010, Lecture 3

Simple Capacity Analysis Then: Population in corridor= = Given: P c = population density at CBD dP = rate of decrease of population density with distance from CBD θ = angle served by corridor r = distance out from CBD L = corridor length t = number of one-way trips per person per day c = share of trips inbound to CB m = transit market share for CBD-bound trips p = share of CBD-bound transit trips in peak hour Nigel Wilson 3 1.258J/11.541J/ESD.226J Spring 2010, Lecture 3
