Some characteristics of transit vehicles within Public Transport Modeling include:

  • Seated and crush-level capacities - required for a system that accounts for crowding
  • Acceleration, deceleration, and maximum speeds - required if you want to translate to a traffic simulation and do an operational analysis
  • Power source, (i.e. electric, diesel, diesel hybrid) - useful for doing a GHG analysis
  • Number of doors - useful for being able to calculate dwell times as a function of passenger boarding/alighting
