Abstract

An optimal traffic regulation method based on passenger oriented traffic evaluation was developed. To formulate the passenger oriented traffic evaluation function, concepts of passenger expectation and passenger inconvenience were introduced. Using the function, a traffic regulation problem is described as an optimisation problem to find an optimum set of departure times and arrival times that gives the minimum passenger inconvenience. This problem is large scale because decision variables are departure times and arrival times of all trains at each
