coach station, transit lines distribution, genetic algorithm


This article presents to shorten the travel time consumption for passengers, considering the building cost and operational efficiency of the coach station; we also build the mathematical model of the coach station location and distribution of transit lines. Calculate the example by genetic algorithm, the result should be assessed and corrected by experts, gaining the way for the coach station location and optimal allocation scheme.
