Abstract

<p> This study aims at establishing the analytical and empirical framework for evaluating user benefit for improving train delay and punctuality based on scheduling-based approaches mainly developed in the literature of travel time reliability. We extend the approach for train commuters’ boarding time choice by incorporating the disparity between actual and scheduled travel time as well as journey travel time variability and estimated scheduling parameters and value of travel time variability by jointly using Tokyo’s urban rail commuter data and train operation data. Then we conduct the computation of user economic benefit for the scenario study of dispersing the work start time distribution based on the train operation simulation model and the calibrated scheduling model of commuters. We find that the computed user benefit is about 23 JPY/passenger/day when we set a specific value of travel time saving obtained from a literature.</p>
