Route optimization of urban public transportation
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper we show the optimization process of urban public transportation routes based on operations research techniques. This is shown in the outline of the development and importance of public transportation planning, its stages, its design and models. We present the design of networks of bus routes showing the overview and background of suitable optimization models for the public transportation system. We developed an optimization model minimizing transfers and we discuss the results according to the proposed theory. The article ends with the main conclusions and recommendations found in the study to improve the route optimization of urban public transportation.
