European Air- and Rail-Transport

Grether, Dominik

This chapter discusses simulation of air- and rail-transport technology and passengers using MATSim. There is no great difference in overall travel times between middle-range rail and air transportation. Airports and railway stations are affected by capacity and opening time constraints. For passengers and goods, geospatial location is an important property. Both modes, but especially air transport, are faced with difficult capacity restrictions at certain departure times. This chapter discusses how MATSim can be applied to capture these constraints and how interaction between passenger demand and constraints on technology supply can be modeled.
