ESCOBAR, Diego A; TAPASCO, Omar A  and  GIRALDO, Jaime A. Measuring of the Performance of the Overhead Cable Transport System of the City of Manizales in Colombia, using Three Approaches: Analytical, Simulated and Urban Accessibility. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2015, vol.26, n.6, pp.199-210. ISSN 0718-0764.

This paper presents the results of a study aimed to obtain performance indicators in a public transport system, from three approaches, analytical, simulation and urban accessibility. For the study the Air transport Cable type of the city of Manizales in Colombia is taken as a case of study. The theoretical model of open networks of Jackson was applied, from the perspective of discrete simulation. The supply models are addressed through the analysis of urban accessibility, for which the data obtained by the Mobility Plan of the city, using the TransCad and Surfer software. The results show that for performance measures, a low rate of use of the transport system is obtained, which clearly confirms the results obtained by the analysis of urban accessibility.

Keywords : public transportation; discrete simulation; open networks of Jackson; air transport cable; urban accessibility.
