  author={Jianming Hu and Xi Shi and Jingyan Song and Yangsheng Xu},
Optimal design for urban mass transit network is the precondition and basis to establish an effective public transportation system. Transit network optimization and headway optimization are two of the most important issues to be dealt with. In this paper, a transit network optimization model is firstly proposed to maximize the nonstop passenger flow. Moreover, this paper puts forwards the optimization model of headways for all the transit routes in the optimized network. Since all the two… CONTINUE READING
