Abstract. Ever-increasing demands for passenger safety on high-speed transport (e.g. underground railway, aeroexpress trains, commuter trains, etc.) have resulted in installing screening systems at the passenger checkpoints, the systems having to work with the necessary throughput considering passenger traffic unevenness and not gathering long queues. This leads to a number of challenges related to managing users’ access to inspection point boxes. The aim of the given work is to build a model for predicting values of an objective function on the basis of several input variable values using the classification method of incoming passenger traffic based on a decision tree. This method is demonstrable and doesn’t require data preprocessing for studying. The main feature of passenger traffic being its unevenness, i.e. its time-to-time variability (according to time, days of week, seasons), the spread of factors influencing passenger traffic unevenness is rather large; this results in a great number of their various combinations. Thus more than ten thousand different incoming distributions of the passenger traffic according to the time of the day has been received as a result of the statistic simulation which presents a double-humped distribution carried out by means of combining three normal distributions having peaks in the morning, afternoon and evening. Applying a decision tree to the first hour of inspection point operation allows to define the capacity of incoming passenger traffic during the whole day and therefore the necessary quantity of inspection points can be determined. This leads to reducing queues to the inspection points. Similar problems can be solved by mobile operators who serve subscribers arriving at the railway stations and airports.
