people in trains

Commuter models any number of public transport services, each travelling on a fixed route. These can be used to model light or heavy rail, interacting with road traffic at level crossings.

A train is configured to stop at a number of stations along its route, where it can pick up or set down passengers. As with private vehicles, the trains are acting as part of the supply for the person-trip demand. A person can choose to take a train between two stands, or plan a trip containing two or more train sections on separate services

As with buses, you can track people as passengers on any train.

The signal rules in Commuter allow you to define train-actuated level-crossings, and study the effect of train service frequency on road-traffic delays.
