Abstract

In the present work a model for schedule optimisation to obtain more efficient and efficacious system is examined. The model of project has been formulated considering as objectives the minimisation of the path times (in terms of penalty) for the users; a model of supply of space-temporal type and a choice model of the run that considers penalty expressly for advance arrivals or delay have been considered; a preliminary test is presented with the results obtained with the reorganisation of the services. 1 Introduction The basic elements that compete to define a general model of transit network design are the structure of potential supply of services, the configuration of demand of transport on the network, the interaction demand-supply and the objectives to optimise. The methodologies proposed in
