Passenger traffic control division

When the passenger traffic control measures are implemented in the station, the underground station adopts the principle of "from bottom to top, from inside to outside", and the elevated station adopts the principle of "from top to bottom, from inside to outside". With advanced video people counter, bus station can get realtime and accurate passenger traffic status easily. Both sum in and sum out passenger numbers and in-station passenger numbers, so we can freely get current passenger traffic.


Level I large passenger traffic: platform passenger traffic control. When the platform is crowded with passengers, and there is a continuous growth trend, control passengers to the platform at the building and escalator entrance of the station hall, and set all escalators to the direction of the station hall to relieve the waiting pressure of platform passengers;


Second level large passenger traffic: passenger traffic control in the payment area. When there are more passengers in the pay area of the station hall, and there is a continuous growth trend, close some automatic ticket vending machines and entrance gates, and control the passengers entering the pay area at the entrance gate;


Three levels of large passenger traffic: non payment area passenger traffic control. When there are more passengers in the non paid area of the station hall, and there is a continuous growth trend, the entrance and exit are limited in batches, only the entrance and exit are not allowed or closed.


Classification of large passenger traffic


According to the predictability of passenger traffic, it can be divided into predictable large passenger traffic and sudden large passenger traffic. According to its causes and characteristics, the predictable large passenger traffic can be divided into holiday large passenger traffic, large event large passenger traffic and severe weather large passenger traffic.


1) Large passenger traffic on holidays: mainly refers to the large increase of passenger traffic at all stations of the whole line caused by public travel and tourist tourism during the national statutory holidays.


2) Large scale activity and large passenger traffic: it mainly refers to the large-scale activities (including large-scale activities held during holidays) held near the subway line.
