A planning tool for maximising transit services

Transit is important for urban sustainable development, but the cost of providing transit services is high. Strategic planning for a public transit system is necessary to maximise the return of public investment. The authors develop a planning tool to aid decision-making about service area, using optimisation techniques for the Prize-Collecting Salesman problem and the concept of hierarchy of travel needs. The authors demonstrate the usefulness of the model for maximising service area under a given budget constraint and socioeconomic conditions, and suggest future research directions.
