Abstract

In urban context, the improvement of rail systems represents a useful tool to promote the use of public transport and reduce environmental impacts of private car use. However, in the event of breakdowns, since faulty trains cannot usually be overtaken and their removal could pose extreme difficulties, re-establishing the regular service could involve inconveniently long travel times. Therefore, in this framework, we analyse effects of management strategies for different levels of degraded services in order to define the best solution to adopt to minimise travel demand discomfort.
