Optimization of Electric Bus Regional Operation Plan

Due to the increasing pollution of fuel vehicles to the environment and the rising cost of their usage, using electric buses to replace fuel vehicles has become a new idea for the development of public transportation. However, due to the limitation of the cruising range of electric buses and the impact of charging demand on driving, the formulation of driving plans is more complicated than that of fuel vehicles. Considering the optimal driving plan and reasonable layout of charging facilities for electric bus, this paper optimizes the total operating cost of electric bus and its supporting facilities. Based on genetic algorithm, a set of operational planning methods is proposed. Finally, the model effect was verified by taking some Bus Line operations in Daxing District of Beijing as example, and compared with the traditional bus operation plan, the total operating cost was reduced by 16.77%.
