Abstract

In metropolitan railway systems, the average commuting time keeps increasing as the scheduled speed increases, and this leads to a decline of rail service usage and competitiveness. Therefore, effective express operation for urban trains is required to improve the scheduled speed. In this study, based on the obtainable time shortening efficiency and economic viability, several express operations are suggested for urban railways and these suggestions are compared by considering high performance trains with acceleration/deceleration and maximum speed improvement. As a result, the optimum express system, which can minimize the cost for sidetrack construction, is suggested.
