Public transport systems represent a potentially effective tool for managing mobility in urban and metropolitan areas.

Abstract

Public transport systems represent a potentially effective tool for managing mobility in urban and metropolitan areas. In particular, especially in high density contexts, rail systems can be adopted as the backbone of transportation services. However, rail systems are also somewhat vulnerable to system failure since, for instance, a faulty train cannot be easily removed or overtaken. Hence, our proposal is to develop an off-line procedure based on a microsimulation approach for analysing the most frequent breakdown conditions and suggesting the adoption of optimal intervention strategies. Finally, different perspectives (i.e. requirements of passengers and rail operators) are proposed and applied in the case of a real metro line in the south of Italy.
