An Optimal Approach for the Bus Line Adjustment in Rail Transit Hubs

In order to improve the efficiency of bus systems in rail transit hubs, an optimal method is proposed to adjust the existing bus lines passing through the hub. Firstly, an optimal model minimizing the trip number of single bus lines and maximizing passenger volumes was presented. Then the enumeration method was applied to solve the optimal model. A case study based on the North Street rail hub in Xi’an was conducted to optimize the bus routes, including the direction, site, and scheduling scheme. The results indicated that the proposed method could optimize the bus lines in rail transit hubs to meet the travel requirements of passengers and improve the traffic conditions.
