Coordinated Operation Model between Urban Rail and Bus Systems Considering Transportation Efficiency

The coordinated operations of urban rail and bus systems are an important part of an integrated mass transit system. This paper takes the transfer system, consisting of rail and bus, as the research object. The costs of the system, including enterprise cost and passenger cost, are analyzed. Taking headway as the optimization variable, the authors analyze its impact on passengers and the relationship between it and system cost. Considering transportation efficiency, a schedule coordination model between urban rail and bus is established. Its aim is to minimize the total cost (consisting of enterprise cost and passenger cost) and maximize transportation efficiency by optimizing transit schedule parameters. At the same time, a solution is proposed to the optimal model. The validity of the model is verified by an empirical analysis. The result shows that the implementation of schedule coordination can increase the enterprise operation efficiency and benefit of passengers.
