Abstract

A computationally feasible methodology to locate, size, and determine the number of transit centres (bus barns or garages) for an urban transit system is described. This methodology, known by the acronym BUBLS (BUs Barn Location System), is applied to a case study with BC Transit, a large Canadian urban transit system. As the case study illustrates, BUBLS is currently employed in capital projects planning.
