Abstract

Passenger distribution along the platform has a significant influence on passenger exchange time and thus on hold time and operating quality. This shows that most passengers orient themselves to the deboarding situation, which leads in part to a very pronounced unequal distribution along the platform. This in turn results in the overloading of individual doors and significantly extended passenger exchange times.
