The city of Rotterdam is globally recognized for its port and its international trading. The city is an important key player for the imports and exports of the European trading market. For this reason, many, small and large, companies have decided to establish their business in or just outside the city. These companies can not operate without...

This paper proposes a shared multi-stakeholder PV system for traction substations and nearby residential loads to reduce the need for storage, AC grid exchange, and curtailment. The residential stakeholders offer both the base electrical load and the solar panels installation space needed by the traction stakeholder, who brings the peak load...

To analyze inherent and diverse patterns within line-based public transport daily delay occurrences, we introduce a data-driven exploratory analysis focused on the spatial-temporal distribution of these delays. Our approach relies on the utilization of the image pattern recognition technique and k-means clustering algorithm. We extract daily...

The burden of first-mile connection to public transit stations is a key barrier that discourages riders from taking public transportation. Public transit agencies typically operate a modest fleet of vehicles to provide first-mile services due to the high operating costs, thus failing to adequately meet the first-mile travel demands,...

Transfer optimization in public transport (PT) networks can be achieved through coordinated timetabling and vehicle scheduling. Traditionally, the coordinated timetabling problem is solved first before proceeding to the vehicle scheduling problem. The integration of these two problems can help further reduce the total operation cost and...

The transportation system in Israel is facing a crisis due to its heavy reliance on private vehicles. To shift towards sustainable mobility, improving public transport quality in the Tel Aviv metropolitan area is crucial. This research investigates the preferences of Tel Aviv citizens regarding transport projects aimed at enhancing public...

Enhancing and expanding public transportation is becoming a crucial solution to the high costs of congestion and the escalating environmental impacts of car-centric transportation systems observed in numerous cities today. One approach to enhance the quality of public transportation, and thereby boosting its ridership, is through the intelligent...

This research aims to understand the influencing attributes of passengers and station layout elements on transfer walking times for metro transfers. Little research has been performed to include passenger-related attributes to model transfer walking time besides station layout elements. Through a literature review, the effect of gender, luggage...

Hierarchy is a network property that identifies the organisation and importance of network elements. Public transport systems consist of stops organised by connections, which can be regarded as networks. In a Public Transport Network (PTN) with a high hierarchy, the number of elements gradually decreases as their importance increases, where the...

The paper examines the relationship between the public transport network and urban diversity in Amsterdam using urban mapping and data analysis. The paper presents a hierarchical analysis of the urban diversity outcome, which is based on the computation of the average diversity scores for each geographical area. The Simpson index is used to...

To analyze latent multiple specific patterns in the line-based public transport daily delay occurrence, a data-driven explorative analysis of public transport daily delay spatial-temporal distribution pattern is performed based on the k-means clustering algorithm. Firstly, we used aggregated daily delay profile to visualize how the delay is...

Public transport is important for society, it provides accessibility to opportunities. Accessibility is not distributed evenly. Some inhabitants are disadvantaged, which has negative impacts on society. The distribution of accessibility between inhabitants can be measured with transport equity. The PT network should be improved in order to...

Solar PV systems have so far been the source of choice for the sustainable supply of urban electric transport networks—like trams and trolleybus grids. However, no consensus exists yet on the placement or sizing of PV systems at the traction substations, and no method is available for easy estimation of the PV system utilization performance....

Introduction: Special Transport Services (STS), a.k.a. paratransit, help keep people with an impairment mobile. Yet these services face financial and organisational challenges. Public transport (PT) is usually seen as a way to alleviate some of these burdens. In fact, the discussion around the potential for PT to substitute STS has been on...

After the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, crowding has been highlighted as a risk factor for contracting acute respiratory infections (ARIs) such as COVID-19, which has affected the demand for public transport. Although several countries, including the Netherlands, have implemented differential fare systems for peak and off-peak travel to...

Overcrowding is a major phenomenon affecting travel experience in urban public transport, whose negative impacts can be potentially mitigated with real-time crowding information (RTCI) on public transport vehicle departures. In this study, we investigate the willingness to wait (WTW) with instantaneous RTCI to avoid the in-vehicle (over...

Travel to intercity transportation hubs, such as railway stations and airports, can be the most troublesome and inefficient part of the entire air/railway travel journey, as travelers often carry large luggage and have stringent arrival time requirements. Taking public transportation, such as metro and bus services, is inconvenient to carry...

This study investigates the potential of modular vehicle concepts and consolidation to increase the efficiency of urban freight and passenger transport. Modularity is achieved by connecting multiple vehicles together to form a platoon. Consolidation is realized by integrating passenger and freight demand in the routing problem. Vehicles are...

Digitalisation in public transport has become pervasive over the past decade, especially in urban areas. While it benefits many, it also leaves some behind. Previous research shows that older adults, people with a lower education level, people with impairments and people with a migration background are more likely to be negatively impacted by...

Transport workers were among the most affected by the COVID-19 crisis. In several countries, public transport and delivery drivers were considered essential workers during the pandemic, while the demand changed dramatically. In this context, little is known about the actual effects of the pandemic on the lives of drivers, and whether those...
