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...

Network hierarchy describes the relative arrangement of network elements and reflects its fundamental structure. We propose a multi-dimensional topology-based method for quantifying and comparing the extent to which different Public Transport Networks (PTNs) exhibit a hierarchical structure. The proposed method considers the uneven distribution...

The provision of good accessibility is the main function of a well-functioning public transport (PT) system, the quality of which affects the ability of people to access basic needs such as employment, education, and healthcare. It is therefore important that PT accessibility is distributed in an equitable, or fair, manner. This thesis evaluates...

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...

On July 22nd 2018 the Noord/Zuidlijn, a metro line crossing the city center of Amsterdam, became operative. This entailed a transformation from a direct bus and tram network to a network consisting of a metro trunk line and bus and tram feeder lines. This study explores and uses interoperable smart card data from before and after the Noord...

We evaluate a large scale network change in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where a regional network of many direct bus lines is replaced by a new metro line as a trunk line and buses serving as feeder lines. For the analysis we use realized trip times from automated vehicle location data and ridership details from smart card data. In the new...

The north-south metro line in Amsterdam became operational in summer 2018, accompanied by changes to the existing bus, metro, and tram network in the city. In this paper we undertake an ex-post analysis of the transportation impacts of the network change. Using two sets of smart card transactions, of 5-6 weeks each, and corresponding...

Hierarchy is regarded as a natural phenomenon of public transport networks (PTN). The imbalanced distribution of passenger flow result in a hierarchical structure of PTN and it is also related to the development of technology and the introduction of new modes. However, there is still a lack of knowledge on how to identify the hierarchical...

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...

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...

Robust public transport networks are important, since disruptions decrease the public transport accessibility of areas. Despite this importance, the full passenger impacts of public transport network vulnerability have not yet been considered in science and practice. We have developed a methodology to identify the most vulnerable links in the...

The quality of a public transport network is not only determined by its performance in non-disturbed situations. On a quite frequent basis public transport service do not operate according to plan. This urges for analysis on how well a network is capable to perform in such situations. How well is a PT network capable of maintaining its network...

This research focuses on the influence of reliability of urban public transport services on network evaluation and network design. Public transport services suffer from all kind of disturbances, varying demand patterns, weather conditions, incidents, road works, et cetera. Current practice uses all kinds of operational measures to ensure the...
