Optimization of train plan for urban rail transit in the multi-routing mode

The train plan of urban rail transit under multi-routing mode can be divided into three parts: train formation, train operation periods and corresponding train counts of each routing in each period. Based on the analysis of passenger’s general travel expenses and operator’s benefits, the constraints and objective functions are defined and the multi-objective optimization model for the train plan of urban rail transit is presented. Factors considered in the multi-objective optimization model include transport capacity, the requirements of traffic organization, corporation benefits, passenger demands, and passenger choice behavior under multi-train-routing mode. According to the characteristics of this model and practical planning experience, a three-phase solution was designed to gradually optimize the train formation, train counts as well as operation periods. The instance of Changsha Metro Line 2 validates the feasibility and efficiency of this approach.
