MASS TRANSIT SYSTEM (LRT) PLANNING FOR URBAN COMMUTERS ALONG A BUSIEST CORRIDOR

In developing countries with limited budgets, focus has shifted from long-term planning studies to intermediate and short-term planning in recent years. This is followed by development of low cost techniques for estimating trip matrices from routine network data, relying mostly on operational research. This paper presents a model that is based on doubly constrained linear programming techniques. The TROPT model aids in estimating corridor level trip tables utilizing bus boarding/alighting surveys. The model can also be used to update and improve a prior O-D matrix. An algorithm used to find a solution to the model is then described, and is validated utilizing data obtained from a very busy traffic corridor in Hyderabad City of Andhra Pradesh, India.
