Distribution of the passengers on rail transit is an important basis for urban rail transit operators to control and manage, and is meaningful to schedule and optimization. Agent can adjust their status to make decisions at the environment, according to the program. Based on the actual rail operation systems, a simulation for rail transit passenger flow of single linear propagation is taken on a multi-agent software. From the two aspects of process and time nodes, the distribution of the passenger on Shanghai Metro Line 16 is analyzed, under the different conditions capacity and interval time. Then, the operations of Shanghai Metro Line 16 would be improved on purpose, to reduce the extent of the stations’ large passenger flow.
