MATHEON-B15: Service Design
Service Design in Public Transport
The goal of service design is to construct a public transport system which is both attractive for passengers and can be operated economically. This requires strategic decisions in network design, line planning, timetabeling, and fare planning. Each of these questions deals with difficult optimization problems with multiple objectives. Moreover, feedback effects and interdependencies arise, e.g., demand is influenced by the service level offered and by the fares.
The vision of this project is to establish and investigate the use of mathematical optimization methods as a decision support tool for service design in public transport.
