Calculation Model of Urban Rail Transit Share Rate Based on Game Theory
As a green, safe, fast, large-capacity, and sustainable public transit, urban rail transit can improve traffic congestion, environmental pollution, and other issues. In order to provide theoretical basis for the calculation of urban rail transit network scale, calculation model of urban rail transit (URT) share rate is established based on game theory between managers and travelers. To analyze the costs of managers and travelers, the model considers energy and environment cost for managers, and it selects economy, efficiency, and safety cost for travelers. To analyze the benefits of managers and travelers, it is assumed that managers’ benefit is operating income, and travelers’ benefit is comfort benefit, which is analyzed by structural equation method. Taking Harbin of China as case, this chapter introduces the specific calculation methods and steps, and the result shows that the reasonable share rate of URT is 18.26% for Harbin city. This method can provide references for transportation planning and it also has a certain application value for traffic operation environment improvement and energy conservation.
