Hermes  PRT
Simulation for the city of Larissa
This is the simulated network
It has 101 stations.
According to the simulation this network can serve 17.000 trips in 30 minutes (34.000 trips/hour) .
To achieve this 3.210 vehicles were used. The average trip length was 4.9 km.
In the maps below you can see how far one can go using the network, starting at a specific point.
(calculations include walking and queuing at stations)

Starting at a station at the center of the network:
Almost the entire city is accessible in 10 minutes.


Starting at a point in the center, 34 minutes away from a station:
Almost 50% of the city is accessible within 10 minutes.
The rest is accessible in 20 minutes.


Starting at a station at the south end of the network:
Big part of the city is accessible within 10 minutes.
The rest is accessible in 20 minutes.


Average trip time (90000 trips random origin/destination):
Blue=time on guideway
Yellow= queueing / delays / station operations
Green = walking time


Note: On the above bar graph as distance is meant the straight origintodestination line
, not the distance actually travelled
E.g. in the left picture the
blue distance , not the
red one.

Under overloading conditions the network can service up to 40.000 trips / hour.
In this case however waiting times at stations are larger and the final commuting speed is lower.
