Integration of the demand responsive transport system (DRT) with the public transport system can provide an opportunity for the public transport authorities to guarantee accessibility in rural areas and address the first/last mile problem in rural areas. The literature on the institutional arrangement and organising DRT as a part of the public...

While social segregation is often assessed in terms of one socio-geographic space, usually place of residence, more recent approaches also incorporate activity-based and, in particular, mobility-based data. This study extends the use of mobility data to measure social segregation between multiple groups by developing a method to connect socio...

Public transport networks are vulnerable to disruptions which have negative impacts on passengers, operator and society. New rescheduling link in PT networks has potential to increase its robustness value against disruptions. The research project deals with identifying the optimal locations of such rescheduling infrastructure in PT network which...

Stations form the main bottle neck in a public transport journey. Efficient PT-systems depend on the optimal cooperation of modalities which makes transferring essential. For years the node place model has been the main paradigm of looking at stations in the Netherlands. This study aims to add a component to the model by developing a score for...

The COVID-19 pandemic poses an unprecedented challenge for the public transport system. The capacity of the transport system has been significantly reduced due to the imposition of social distancing measures to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. People remain skeptical about the use of public transport and prefer alternatives for their...

Crowding in trains during rush hour is known to cause discomfort. After the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, crowding has also been highlighted as a risk factor for catching Acute Respiratory Infections (ARIs) such as COVID-19 which has affected the demand of public transport. Several countries, including the Netherlands, have differential fare...

With the increasing demand for public transport systems worldwide and also a lot of these systems running at their maximum capacity, there is a strong need for finding ways for these systems to operate in a more efficient way. In recent transportation research there is an increasing attention for operational conditions and the impact of...

Bike-train usage contributes to more sustainable and also more reliable transport. Nowadays, approximately 45% of the train passengers in the Netherlands access the station by bike. Therewith, the focus of policy makers shifts to the total “door-to-door” travel experience. Bicycle usage is stimulated, and the facilities are adapted accordingly....

The two urban challenges of the mobility shift and industrial redevelopment come together at the site of the Merwe-Vierhavens (M4H) in Rotterdam. The mobility shift consists of the transition from polluting vehicles towards sustainable alternatives, like electric vehicles, and the use of public transport and slow mobility. The industrial shift...

It is well known among the academicians and urban transport studies have repeatedly reiterated that transport transit-oriented development (TOD) can and is increasing the propensity to use transit. TOD essentially brings housing, jobs, entertainment options, restaurants, groceries closer to the transit stop.But the success of a TOD area is only...

The high quality public transport network implemented by R-net, short for Randstadnet, follows a product formula on multiple public transport modalities (bus, tram, metro, and train) and acts as a quality mark. R-net is a collaboration between six public transport authorities and nine operators. However, currently R-net is confusing the...

The number of passengers using public transport has decreased drastically as a consequence of the global coronavirus pandemic in 2020. This study aimed to retrieve the importance of the perceived risk of getting infected with the coronavirus in choosing to go by train in the Netherlands. With a Hierarchical Information Integration approach it...

The development of public transport networks in polycentric regions involves making complex trade-offs between extending network coverage, densifying local connections, offering improved connections between urban centers and increasing capacity on existing links. Moreover, different modalities might be suitable for each of these development...

While transferring between public transport services has a negative impact on the level-of-service, it is an inevitable feature of public transport networks. Transfer coordination can help reduce passenger transfer waiting times and improve service connectivity. In this paper, we systematically review the literature on transfer coordination...

As Public Transport (PT) becomes more dynamic and demand-responsive, it increasingly depends on predictions of transport demand. But how accurate need such predictions be for effective PT operation? We address this question through an experimental case study of PT trips in Metropolitan Copenhagen, Denmark, which we conduct independently of any...

Although waiting times are inherently uncertain in public transport networks, previous research has primarily studied route choice behaviour under risk. Since understanding such behaviour is important to correctly model network flows and gain better understanding of traveller satisfaction, we propose a method to assess travellers’ route...

The maturing of autonomous driving technology in recent years has led to several pilot projects and the initial integration of autonomous pods and buses into the public transport (PT) system. An emerging field of interest is the design of public transport networks operating autonomous buses and the potential to attract higher levels of travel...

Online shops are responsible for a significant increase in the total volume of parcels which have to be transported. Due to the increase in volume there are more vehicles required to meet this enormous demand. This has a negative impact on the traffic flow on the infrastructure. A possible solution can be found in ride-sharing, as sharing...

As travel demand grows in many cities around the world, overcrowding in public transport systems has become a major issue and has many negative effects for both users and operators. Measures to address on-board congestion span from large-scale strategic investments (e.g. increasing infrastructure capacity), through tactical planning (e.g....

Bus bunching is a well-known problem in public transport networks. It is characterized by a self-amplifying relationship between uneven distribution of rising passenger loads and deteriorating service regularity. The focus of this study is to analyse whether this negative feedback loop can be addressed by providing real-time crowding...
