ENGELBRECHT, L.  and  BEKKER, J.. A decision support model for passenger capacity design of BRT stations. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2012, vol.23, n.1, pp.162-177. ISSN 2224-7890.

In this paper, a decision support model for capacity planning of bus rapid transit stations is proposed. Static, deterministic models are used at present for station capacity design, whereas bus passenger flow through stations is dynamic with an associated stochastic element. Passenger arrivals vary over time, and are driven by bus schedules and process variation. The proposed model produces capacity design curves for given input data sets and bus schedules, and assists the station designer without being prescriptive. A case study of model application to the proposed Thibault Station in Cape Town, South Africa, is presented.
