The recovery of the public transportation system is critical for both social re-engagement and economic rebooting after the shutdown during pandemic like COVID-19. In this study, we focus on the integrated optimization of service line reopening plan and timetable design. We model the transit system as a space-time network. In this network, the number of passengers on each vehicle at the same time can be represented by arc flow. We then apply a simplified spatial compartmental model of epidemic… Expand


Capacitated transit service network design with boundedly rational agents
This paper proposes a new alternative modeling framework to systemically account for boundedly rational decision rules of travelers in a dynamic transit service network with tight capacityExpand
Mathematical programming formulations for transit network design
This work considers the problem of defining the number and itinerary of bus routes and their frequencies, for a public transportation system, and proposes a mixed integer linear programming (MILP) formulation, that incorporates the waiting time and the existence of multiple lines in the behavior of the users.

Integrated Frequency Allocation and User Assignment in Multimodal Transit Networks
This paper presents an integrated solution method to the frequency-setting problem using optimization and assignment simulation. With a bilevel solution framework, an optimization problem is run atExpand
Two-phase stochastic program for transit network design under demand uncertainty
This paper develops a reliability-based formulation for rapid transit network design under demand uncertainty. We use the notion of service reliability to confine the stochastic demand into a boundedExpand
Optimizing urban rail timetable under time-dependent demand and oversaturated conditions
Abstract This article focuses on optimizing a passenger train timetable in a heavily congested urban rail corridor. When peak-hour demand temporally exceeds the maximum loading capacity of a train,Expand
Optimal Design of Intersecting Bi-Modal Transit Networks in a Grid City
This work forms parsimonious continuum models for minimizing the total cost of the patrons and the transit agency for an intersecting bimodal transit network in a grid city, where the perpendicular local and express lines intersect at transfer stops. Expand
Transit network design and scheduling: A global review
A global review of the crucial strategic and tactical steps of transit planning: the design and scheduling of the network and a classification of 69 approaches dealing with the design, frequencies setting, timetabling of transit lines and their combinations is proposed. Expand
A Simple Planning Problem for COVID-19 Lockdown
We study the optimal lockdown policy for a planner who wants to control the fatalities of a pandemic while minimizing the output costs of the lockdown. We use the SIR epidemiology model and a linearExpand
A review of urban transportation network design problems
This review intends to provide a bigger picture of transportation network design problems, allow comparisons of formulation approaches and solution methods of different problems in various classes of UTNDP, and encourage cross-fertilization between the RNDP and PTNDP research. Expand
Planning, operation, and control of bus transport systems: A literature review
The efficiency of a transport system depends on several elements, such as available technology, governmental policies, the planning process, and control strategies. Indeed, the interaction betweenExpand
