ZONE SCHEDULING OF BUS ROUTES TO IMPROVE SERVICE RELIABILITY

A model of an urban bus route incorporating measures of both reliability and average trip time is developed. The impact of zone scheduling on these measures is determined by selecting optimal zone structures using a dynamic programming model. Application of the model to a specific bus route shows that zone scheduling can simultaneously improve reliability and average trip time while also allowing bus fleet reductions compared to all-local service.
