But how many times in the day (and at how many stations) is there a crowd both embarking and disembarking?I always assumed that if you told people which platform in advance, they would all go wait there and get in the way of passengers disembarking.
At the AM rush, yes there's a huge crowd trying to disembark, but how many counter-rush commuter are they and would you even notice?
In the PM rush, who is getting off that the boarding hoards would interfere with?
Versus, if you were trying to turn trains quickly, being able to load immediately after unloading would be a good way to enable quick turns.
