Abstract

Mass transit system (LRT) planning for urban commuters along a busiest corridor S. ~nisuddin' & ~ . ~ . ~ a m a m u r t h $ I Faculty, Caledonian College of Engg., Sultanate of Oman. 2 Faculty, Regional Engg. College, India. Abstract In developing countries with limited budgets, emphasis has shifted from long term planning studies to intermediate and short term planning in recent years. This is followed by development of low cost techniques for estimating trip matrices from routine network data, relying mostly upon operation's research. One such model based on doubly constrained linear programming technique has been attempted in the present work. The TROPT model developed here helps in estimating corridor level trip tables utilising bus boardinghlighting surveys. The model can also be used to update and improve a previous 0-D matrix. Algorithm to find a solution to the model is then described and it has been validated utilising the data obtained on a busiest corridor in Hyderabad city of Andhra
