A well planned and organized public transport system contributes significantly to the economic growth and improved quality of life in a city and a nation at large. However, developing such a system requires understanding of the city's local conditions and development dynamics, so that the design addresses the current and future needs of the city...

The RetBus project is a plan of the City Council of Barcelona (Catalonia, Spain) and the transit operator TMB aimed at improving the public transport service in the city. The project involves building a new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system called RetBus as well as eliminating or modifying some existing bus lines. The main design objective of the...

In my thesis, I have done research into the optimization of stopping patterns and frequencies of public transport services within a network. I have developed a model that takes both passenger and operator costs into account. The model has been run for a small fictional network and for the metro and train network of Amsterdam, to explore how the...

This project was executed for NS (Nederlandse Spoorwegen). Research was done to discover what kind of travellers visit the OV Service & Tickets shop and why they visit the shop. The OV Service & Tickets shop is a shop which can be found on ten (bigger) train stations in the Netherlands. For example in The Hague. NS provides service in...

As the population grows, the need for mobility has been growing in recent years. In the case of urban mobility, this trend is subsequently followed by the existence of high-frequency bus transit service since last decades. This service is more prone to the bus-bunching problem since the headway between the consecutive buses can be very short,...

Passenger punctuality is one of the most important measures to indicate and improve the service reliability of public transport operators. Previously, passenger punctuality measurements were mainly based on passenger counts in combination with vehicle locations. With the growing use of Automatic Fare Collection systems, passenger punctuality...

This research combines two relatively new additions to the field of discrete choice modelling: sequential best worst discrete choice experiments (SBWDCE) and random regret minimisation (RRM) modelling, with the hope of developing a more behaviourally realistic choice model. SBWDCEs are able to gather a larger number of stated choice observations...

The aim of this thesis was to find the preferences of bus users in rural areas of the Netherlands for alternative public transport. Two alternatives for bus were proposed: a demand responsive transport service and a multi-modal alternative that combined express bus with bike-sharing services for last mile transport. A stated choice survey was...

The aim of this thesis is to gain insights into the impact that various variables have on the topological evolution of a public transit network in a polycentric urban region. These variables are: the spatial structure of the polycentric urban region, the demand distribution, the operational costs and multimodality versus unimodality. To gain...

Since 2011, an electronic registration system, called the OV chip card, has been in use in the Netherlands for the payment of all public transport. As a result, the Dutch Railways (NS) have implemented all the necessary equipment to support the sales and validation processes of this system. Another company (Thales, the agent) has been hired to...

Due to connectivity problems, the attractiveness of public transport is limited. Policymakers aim to increase the modal share of public transport to protect the accessibility, livability, safety, sustainability and efficiency in the cities of the future. Applying Autonomous Mobility on-Demand (AMoD) systems as a feeder service for public...

In this study, a data-driven, generic and transfer-based methodology for separation and ranking the PTNs has been put forward. With the hierarchy of a network, this is beneficiary for the management and operation of operators for focusing on the higher level network layer and in turn provide better service for passengers. The study introduces...

In order for public transportation to remain an attractive travel option, its reliability must be improved. To enable this, extensive knowledge on the passenger delay phenomenon is necessary. This study explores the possibility of using empirical data of passenger delay to determine the relationships between stations through a Bayesian Network...

During tenders in public transport, the bus network is reconsidered and adjusted. An accurate prediction of the effect on ridership is required. Due to the tender environment, time and input data are limited. This research focuses on deriving a relation between level-of-service (LOS) and ridership, and implementing this in a model suitable for...

In this research, the link between air travel and the first/last mile trip with public transportation will be researched, as in practice, ticket platforms (such as Booking.com or Expedia) do not yet provide this integrated air- and public transport service. Eventually, the idea would be to create an integration platform that serves as a mediator...

This project revolves around redesigning Demand Responsive Transport services for non-digital users. The Ombudsman has identified that in the past couple of years public transport (PT) operators are replacing fixed transit lines (FLT) by Demand Responsive Transport (DRT) services in low demand areas (OV-loket, 2017). DRT is more efficient,...
