Optimal Schedule Modeling for Public Transportation System
Neeraj Singh Bais | Nikhil Pitale | Sanket Thorat
Abstract: with rapid development across India, large urban areas have developed. This new metropolitan centers need for transportation facilities have increased fourfold. As India is a developing country public transport is the most important mode of transport. But Public transportation in India is inefficient and inadequate. Public transport has not been able to keep pace with the growing demand for transportation facilities. Therefore it becomes necessary to increase the efficiency of public transport so that more people can shift from private to public transport. The performance of transportation system can be improved by an Optimal scheduling of resources. Optimal scheduling can provide economical and efficient use of fleet resource and provide safe and fast mode of transport to city needs. The proposed method minimizes the waiting time of passengers at stops and to minimize the number of buses require for the same operation. The constraints include load factor, time constraint & frequency constraint. The optimal schedule will subjected to condition of maintaining a minimum number of passengers travelling onboard the buses. This will help to increase the frequency if the demand for service is more and reduce the frequency if demand is less and save considerable amount of money for the agencies. The proposed model is to be applied to an actual route for Nagpur city.
