R9) The remainder of this chapter introduces the basic capacity concepts common to all public transit modes. Parts 4 through 7 of the TCQSM apply these concepts to the development of mode-specific capacity and speed procedures. Many of these concepts also have quality of service impacts, which are discussed in Part 3. CAPACITY DEFINED Capacity Relationships Public transit service focuses on moving people from one place to another. In contrast to the automobile mode, where a large number of vehicles are used to transport a somewhat larger number of people, transit service works by using a relatively small number of vehicles to transport large numbers of people.

Major enhancements to this part include a broader discussion of the relationship of different passenger processing elements in larger stations and terminals in impacting overall facility capacity, and discussions about sizing station facilities to address passenger demands, ADA requirements, and emergency evacuation requirements. Part 8: Glossary Part 8 includes an expanded glossary of terms from that presented in the First Edition, with more than 2,000 terms defined. Part 9: Index Part 9 includes a comprehensive alphabetical index of terms used in the manual.
