Wait Time Models Simple deterministic model: E(w) = E(h)/2 where E(w) = expected waiting time E(h) = expected headway Model assumptions: passenger arrival times are independent of vehicle departure times vehicles depart deterministically at equal intervals every passenger can board the first vehicle to arrive John Attanucci 1.258J/11.541J/ESD.226J Spring 2010, Lecture 14 2

Passenger Arrival Process Individual, group, and bulk passenger arrivals Passengers can be classified in terms of arrival process: random arrivals time arrival to minimize E(w) arrive with the vehicle, i.e. have w = 0 John Attanucci 1.258J/11.541J/ESD.226J Spring 2010, Lecture 14 3

Vehicle Departure Process Vehicle departures typically not regular and deterministic Wait Time Model refinement: If: n(h) = # of passengers arriving in a headway h w ( h ) = mean waiting time for passengers arriving in headway
