Optimization in Public Transportation Stop Location, Delay Management and Tariff Zone Design in a Public Transportation Network Synopsis

This book develops models, results and algorithms for optimizing public transportation from a customer-oriented viewpoint. The methods used are based on graph-theoretic approaches and integer programming. The specific topics are all motivated by real-world examples which occurred in practical projects: location of stops, management of delay, and tariff zone design. An appendix summarizes some of the basics of optimization needed to interpret the material in the book.

Optimization in Public Transportation Stop Location, Delay Management and Tariff Zone Design in a Public Transportation Network Press Reviews

From the reviews: The author ... has written a fine book that addresses three major issues in public transportation network design and operation: (1) location of stops, (2) delay management, and (3) design of tariff zones. ... it should be very useful to the OR consultants who work for PTS managers; it contains a wealth of models and algorithms. ... The book's organization is excellent. ... Each section ends with remarks on extensions of the work described in that section. (Jamshed A. Modi, Interfaces, Vol. 38 (1), 2008)
