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...

The increasing urbanisation leads to more traffic movements in cities. Since car traffic in particular has a negative impact on the livability in the city, an alternative for car travel should be investigated to discourage car use. A possible alternative for car use could be the integrated bicycle-transit mode. Although more and more research is...

Recently many bicycle sharing programs have been introduced in cities worldwide. The combined use of shared bicycles and public transport could offer an attractive alternative for private motorised vehicles and could contribute to making cities better accessible and liveable. However, it is unsure whether this combination, especially with urban...

Service reliability is one of the most important performance measures to public transport users. Detecting disruptions helps to measure service reliability, which can be used by public transport operators to improve this reliability. In this thesis, a methodology is described to automatically detect disruptions offline, using smart card data....

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...

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...

This study investigated the potential of ex-post fare policy evaluation utilising smartcard data. It looked into how to identify and measure the actual outcomes of a policy, define the degree of its success, and even find some unexpected side-effects of high importance. The study is based on a case of the public transport fare policy introduced...

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...

Public transport networks (PTNs) have an impact on both travelers’ behavior and system operations. A meaningful approach to investigate PTNs is via their topological structure because it was found to be correlated to the operational performance, the total ridership, consumer experience, passenger flow distribution, and network resilience. A...

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...

Over the past decade, the development of ICT and online platforms has provided the infrastructure for new ways of sharing on a scale never seen before which are causing a shift from ownership to access-based- consumption. This trend offers promising prospects for the case of mobility but the true magnitude of impact that the...

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...

The Euregio Maas-Rijn can be considered a Polycentric Urban Region (PUR), a region that consists mostly of medium and small-sized cities. The region is divided by three national borders, but the opening of European borders has enabled the region to cooperate more. PUR’s have access to the same level of agglomeration benefits as a single, large...

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...

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...

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...

Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is a concept that integrates public transport and other access based mobility services into one easy to use platform. For users this means that they no longer have to do large investments while still having access to transport. They can perform door-to-door journeys in a way that suits their needs at a specific time....

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...

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...
