A Simulation Study of Demand Responsive Transit System Design

  title={A Simulation Study of Demand Responsive Transit System Design},
  author={Luca Quadrifoglio and Maged M. Dessouky and F. Ord{\'o}{\~n}ez and Daniel J. Epstein},
In this paper we study the impact on productivity of specific operating practices currently used by demand responsive transit (DRT) providers. We investigate the effect of using a zoning vs. a no-zoning strategy and time-window settings on performance measures such as total trip miles, deadhead miles and fleet size. It is difficult to establish closed-form expressions to assess the impact on the performance measures of a specific zoning practice or time-window setting for a real transportation… CONTINUE READING
