A SOLUTION METHOD FOR THE BUS ALLOCATION PROBLEM

The problem of allocating a given number of buses to a set of routes in order to minimize passengers waiting time is studied and a solution method is discussed. An extension of the problem where in-vehicle time is also taken into account is derived and it is shown that the suggested method can also be used to solve the extended problem. A small numerical example is also given. (TRRL)
