A Review of Solution Methodologies for Frequency Optimization of Buses used for Public Transportation

Advisor: Dr. Catherine Harmonosky Associate Professor and Associate Department Head Harold and Inge Marcus Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Abstract: Public bus transport systems are a very crucial support for a community. It is essential to maintain such a system or develop a new one. Various works have been published over the last four decades on the bus frequency optimization problem. Some of them also consider it as a subproblem of other transport system design problems. Optimal setting of bus frequency could have many far-reaching implications. This paper provides a review of the solution methodologies used for frequency optimization methods of bus transport systems. As cities evolve, so do their transportation problems. The goal of this paper is to provide valuable information and allow for comparison of approaches used in the past as well as recently, encouraging an evolved approach to the bus frequency optimization problem.
