CLUSTERING FOR ROUTING IN DENSE AREA

This paper introduces a new approach for generating school bus routes in a dense urban area. First, a districting algorithm is used to determine clusters including appropriate numbers of students. Then for each cluster, a route and the stops along this route are determined. Numerical results are reported and compared with those obtained previously. Although the algorithm has been developed and tested in a specific context, it could easily be extended to more general vehicle scheduling problems. (TRRL)
