A discrete model of a TransMilenio station dynamics: Representation and algorithms

Sergio A. Rojas-Galeano, Camilo Rodriguez Garzon

Resumen


Current demand of Bogota’s BRT system (TransMilenio) is causing critical overcrowding phenomena throughout the system, particularly in bus stations. The behaviour of individual passengers is such stations is simplistic, yet the resulting crowd dynamics is complex, as most frequent users of the system may attest. Discrete models such as cellular automata have proved helpful in simulating simplistic-local vs complex-global behaviour in similar contexts. The aim of this study is to characterise a cellular automata model of a TransMilenio station that eventually may serve as a tool for better understanding these dynamics, and to encourage the proposal of mitigation strategies. The paper describes representations and algorithmic aspects of the model and presents preliminary simulations that demonstrate the feasibility of the discussed considerations.
