PTV Viswalk Pedestrian Micro-Simulation

Passenger Transfer to and from Bus Replacement Services at Baden-Baden Main Station

When a small bridge over the Murg river near the city of Rastatt had to be replaced during the Easter weekend in 2011 all rail services which normally run through Baden-Baden had to be terminated there and passengers had to transfer to bus services.

Busses brought passengers of long-distance high-speed services to/from Karlsruhe main station and those of regional services to/from Rastatt station.

The long-distance services included connections from Hamburg to Zurich, Bern to Berlin, and Paris to Munich. While Baden-Baden station was and is designed that the train connections pass through with many passengers on board, it was never planned to have all those passengers transfer to connecting services.

This required a refined highly detailed planning with PTV Viswalk pedestrian micro-simulation, where issues with bottlenecks were solved by sending some of the passengers on detours through the station.

The entire project went well: the bridge was replaced in time and passengers in Baden-Baden were transferred in time without issues to the busses and all got their connecting services in Karlsruhe and Rastatt.
