A Design Methodology for Bus Transit Networks with Coordinated August 1994 Operations 6

  title={A Design Methodology for Bus Transit Networks with Coordinated August 1994 Operations 6},
  author={Mao-Chang Shih and Hani S. Mahmassani},
Previous approaches to bus transit network design focused on conventional service concepts that provide fixed-route, fixed schedule, and uncoordinated systems, with the same vehicle size on all routes. As spatial trip pattems in most U.S. cities continue to evolve from a multiple origin, Single destination pattern to a multiple origin, multiple destination pattern, conventional service concepts are no longer adequate to serve these new trip patterns. This report presents a network design… CONTINUE READING
