Abstract

In general, train operators tend to regulate trains from the operational perspective and use criteria such as shorter delays or smaller deviations from an original timetable. These criteria may not be so important in metro type railways, where trains are quite frequent. Previous work has proposed a regulation algorithm from the passenger perspective, that is, using criteria based on waiting and travelling time, and train congestion. This algorithm, combined with classical optimisation techniques, has shown significant improvements in the objective criteria. This paper proposes to introduce a further criterion from the passenger perspective, which is called \“halt dis
