Abstract—The waiting hall is an important part for railway passenger station. To optimize and analyze the usage of waiting hall has great significance for improving operation efficiency of railway passenger station. Based on the research on the passenger volume and passenger flow construction, distribution regularities of passenger arrival time, passenger waiting time and the capacity of checking tickets windows can be obtained. On the basis of optimization and analysis of large scale railway passenger stations, algorithm for passenger stream lines of different platforms can be obtained and 0-1 planning model of the minimum waiting areas divided can be established. Based on the above work, constrains on whether there exist parallel operations for railway staffs are established, and phrases are divided into several time blocks, the object function is the balance usage of waiting halls in large scale railway stations in one day and the shortest passenger stream lines in waiting halls, then a multiple-objective model on operation arrangement for waiting halls of large scale railway passenger stations is proposed, and its optimal algorithm is also present. Finally, a case study is carried out to verify the validity, objectivity and applicability of this model and its algorithm through calculated and analyzed practical data based on Lanzhou railway station. Optimal results show that the model on operation arrangement for waiting hall in large scale railway passenger stations can reach the usage balance of waiting halls and the shortest passenger stream lines, the maximum difference between simulation passenger flow volume of each waiting hall and actual waiting passenger flow volume is 296, and the minimum difference is 131.

Index Terms—Waiting distributing region; passenger flow line, 0-1 linear programming; dynamic programming; algorithms.
