Description

Abstract

In transportation system one of the main activity is the simulation the supply system. For transit system two approaches can be used: line-based approach, where all runs belonging to the same line are simulated in a single infrastructure line; run-based approach where the single runs are explicitly simulated.

In this paper the two approaches are applied in the extra-urban supply system of Reggio Calabria provincia. In this area there are about 570.000 inhabitant and the supply has more than 1.300 runs a day. The result obtained from the different supply approaches are discussed and they are used in other models of the general model as input for demand and assignment simulation, for evaluate services integration and operative costs.
