MSc Thesis: Passenger Delay Propagation in Metro Systems and Their Causes

MSc Thesis: Passenger delay propagation in metro systems and their causes

This project involves analysing the characteristics of passenger delays using a large database consisting of passenger, train and disruption data for the Washington DC metro system. Thereafter, developing a model for capturing passenger delay patterns and applying it to the data from Washington DC. The model should co-relate causes and durations of disruptions with spillover effects, i.e. a pass-delay propagation model, possibly also looking into the recovery time.
