In this investigation, a routing and scheduling algorithm is developed which can be applied to both conventional fixed route transportation systems and demand-activated transportation systems. The algorithm treats the routing and scheduling problem of route-deviation transportation systems with a cumulative approach and heuristic techniques. A simulation model was designed for investigating the performance of the algorithm and for studying the characteristics of route-deviation transportation systems. The algorithm is capable of solving the scheduling and routing problems of both fixed route and route-deviation transportation systems, or systems with combinational demands, complex lead time demands, and repetitive demands.
