Abstract

This paper deals with the development of strategic approach for optimizing the operation of public transport system that considers both user's objective and operator's objective. Passengers of public transport are assumed to seek minimum wait time to conduct trips, while on the other way, operators are concerned with the efficient operation such as minimum fleet size. The average minimum wait time is to be achieved by creating optimal despatching policy of each vehicle from terminal. As for efficient operation the utilisation of vehicle should be maximised by having minimum number of vehicles in operation. User's and operator's objectives are optimized within certain operational constraints such as vehicle capacity to maintain acceptable level of service. The model is
