Organization of a Shuttle Bus under the Condition of Operation Interruption to Urban Rail Transit

When an urban rail transit (URT) is interrupted, it can cause great delays and may result in heavy casualties. The shuttle bus is considered to be an effective way to connect the fault section. The passenger flow characteristics of the line, the departure frequency and the fitted out vehicles of the shuttle bus are the key points for emergency decision-making. To solve those problems, this paper made a Stated Preference (SP) survey to figure out the demand characteristics of passengers. A route choice model was designed to forecast passenger demand based on historical URT origin/destination (OD) data and SP data, and the optimization method for considering and not considering the constraint of the number of bus vehicles was given. A case study in Shanghai showed that the proposed method can meet the distributary demand caused by train delay and save the number of bus vehicles dispersed when operation interruption occurs.
