Improving Bus Service Reliability with Stochastic Optimization

Abstract

Bus route performance, typically expressed in terms of excess waiting time (EWT), is often unstable and suffers from bunching which results in lower regularity. Governments are introducing regularity-based contracts for... [ view full abstract ]
