This work deals with the proposal of some models for the schedule optimization problem for public transit networks. In particular, we consider the case of a transit terminal where passengers are supposed to split among different lines of a service, or even change mode of transportation in case of intermodal systems. Starting from a given schedule for the transit lines arriving at the terminal, the aim is to decide the optimal schedule for the output lines, in such a way to balance the operative costs of the service and the passenger waiting time at the transit terminal. We propose two different models for this problem, which present strong similarities with some well known combinatorial optimization models. Computational results are also presented, showing the suitability of the models to solve real case studies.

Abstract

This work deals with the proposal of some models for the schedule optimization problem for public transit networks. In particular, we consider the case of a transit terminal where passengers are supposed to split among different lines of a service, or even change mode of transportation in case of intermodal systems. Starting from a given schedule for the transit lines arriving at the terminal, the aim is to decide the optimal schedule for the output lines, in such a way to balance the operative costs of the service and the passenger waiting time at the transit terminal. We propose two different models for this problem, which present strong similarities with some well known combinatorial optimization models. Computational results are also presented, showing the suitability of the models to solve real case studies.
