Investigates and quantifies the variables that affect the maximum passenger carrying capacity of rail transit in four categories-- rail rapid transit (heavy rail), light rail transit, commuter rail, and automated guideway transit (AGT)--in North America.Note that this should be applied for the intersection with the longest traffic signal cycle or train dwell time. where tc = D R = _ (g/Q3600fl aquot; (g/QD + ... Traffic queuing, left turns and parallel parking can all serve to reduce light rail transit capacity.
