Reducing the wasted transportation capacity of Personal Rapid Transit systems: An integrated model and multi-objective optimization approach

This study addresses the problem of wasted transportation capacity in Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) systems. The authors propose a two-tier transportation model that integrates PRT and capillary transportation systems. They study a related multi-objective empty vehicle redistribution problem that attempts to minimize empty movement and the number of vehicles used. Furthermore, they design a hybrid multi-objective genetic algorithm that integrates multiple crossover operators and linear programming techniques to solve the proposed problem. Evaluations indicate that the authors' algorithm produces satisfactory results, and simulations confirm the efficiency of their proposed two-tier transportation system.
