Abstract

The basic construction of the objective functions of the transit network design problem is described, and a new approach taking account of both passenger and operator interests is proposed. The approach presented combines the philosophy of the mathematical programming approaches with decision-making techniques in order to allow the user to select from a number of alternatives. The nature of the overall formulation is nonlinear and mixed-integer programming.
