The train network is a vital link within the mobility chain. Several aspects in the mobility chain are changing, for example the alternatives in modes and the trip types of passengers. The rail network with the vital locations as stations and the operation of the services on the network seem to be less adaptive, while the travel behaviour of...

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...

We test the effect of a variety of feature sets representing passenger volumes, weather conditions and train interactions, when defined as features and used in a gradient boosting model to predict passenger train delays 20 minutes to the future from the last registration point. Effects of the features and their combinations on the prediction...

The population of The Netherlands is ageing. It is important to offer suitable transportation options for the elderly to keep them participating in social activities to prevent lonelines. This research investigated the preferences and usage of bus services of elderly in urban areas in The Netherlands and the corresponding heterogeneity. 256...

The discussion involving BRT and LRT is well alive among policymakers, who often rely on personal preferences or, as it is called in literature, on “blind commitment” towards one system or the other for their decision-making. The reason for choosing a system according to personal taste is also caused by the unknown preferences that public...

Mass rapid transit plays an important role in providing a sustainable form of transport in densely populated areas. Public transport operators worldwide are experiencing an increase in popularity of their network and are experiencing ridership growth on their metro networks. To accommodate ridership growth, many transport operators are tasked...

In an environment in which Public Transport plays an ever growing role in urban areas and passenger experience. In-depth knowledge on customer satisfaction is key in improving passenger experience. Crowding has shown to be an important aspect of route and mode choice, but its impact on customer satisfaction has not yet been quantitatively...

The accessibility of cities is under pressure in the Netherlands. Automated vehicles are often mentioned as a possible solution for this problem. In this study, the financial feasibility of automated buses is examined from an operator<br/>perspective. A financial model is developed and applied on the bus network of Almere where four different...

Investing in urban transit is necessary to fuel urban growth and sustainable mobility. Decision making for public transport projects usually involves long term forecasts of travel demand. Future development of factors that influence those forecasts and hence the expected net societal benefits of the investments are uncertain. Decision makers may...

The 4th generation of bike-sharing, also known as dockless- and free-floating bike-sharing is a new type of bike-sharing system. It allows users to start and end their rentals anywhere in the service area. In the spring of 2018 Mobike started their services in the city of Delft. This research is set up around data collected in Delft about the...

In this thesis, the applicability of tram-train in an urban region is studied. A three-step top-down method is used, to narrow down the solution space and determine whether a tram-train solution can be applied, is suitable and technically feasible.

The introduction and obligation of tendering PT (concessions) in Europe has led to more focus on cost-efficiency and contracts. An additional effect in regional PT is the increase of undesirable boundaries between train and bus, e.g. in the form of non-aligned tariffs and bad interchange possibilities. The goal of a multimodal concession is to...

The bicycle-transit combination is researched through a revealed preference survey in The Hague, applied on the tram network. Two main things are examined: which factors affect feeder distance and which feeder mode choice. This is done by bivariate analyses, multivariate analyses (two logistic regression models) and a qualitative analysis ...

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,...

Capturing the individual’s behavioral responses to the actions driven by market and government will always be an interesting activity towards a broad spectrum of society. It could not be neglected that an individual may have different views in responding towards a new policy intervention or a new product market. However, references to use of the...

Due to current, ongoing mega trends such as continuing urbanisation and expanding population size, pressure on our urban transport system is increasing, resulting in more congestion, emissions, noise pollution and stress, among others. Transport is seen as one of a range of factors outside of health and medical fields which are known to impact...

Perception based analysis to add any value in the decision making process. Nowadays, a CBA is used to assess large infrastructure projects. However, this method has its disadvantages and perhaps another method can add more value in the decision-making process of public transport investments. This thesis investigates whether a perception-based...
