As an important part of public transportation, urban rail transit becomes the main travel mode for residents during the rush hours. In this paper we proposed the concept of passengers’ willingness to board and find that boarding selection was closely related to the number of queuing passengers and train load factor. By using passenger flow data of Beijing subway network, we constructed passengers’ boarding model based on different load factors. The results of boarding model proposed in this paper and fixed train capacity model were compared in the simulation analysis. The boarding model based on different load factors accorded with the actual condition better, which embodied that passengers’ willingness to board do influence the behavior of passengers.
