Efficient repositioning strategies for idle vehicles in ride-sourcing systems help reduce passengers' waiting time and drivers' operational costs, which help platforms attract more passengers and drivers. In this paper, we propose a decentralized repositioning strategy for drivers, in which drivers make individual decisions on where they...

The pivotal sector of transportation has shown signs of a surge in demand. The European Union projects a 42% increase in passenger transport from 2019 until 2050. Policymakers and stakeholders must collaborate to address the increasing transportation demand while considering environmental, societal, and economic benefits Despite efforts to...

There is a need to broaden discussions on sustainable mobility beyond electric cars and address the challenges faced by border regions and marginalised groups dependent on public and soft transport. This thesis explores how a transition strategy can support the creation a just and sustainable multi-modal network in a cross-border context. The...

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...

With the electrification in freight transportation, fast-charging facilities are crucial to support enroute charging for long-distance freight trips. The goal of this study is to develop an integrated fast-charging facility planning framework to prepare for the increasing enroute freight charging demand in the Netherlands. Based on highway...

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...

Ride-sourcing drivers, as individual service suppliers, can freely adopt their own relocation strategies, including waiting, cruising freely, or following the platform recommendations. These decisions substantially impact the balance between supply and demand, and consequently affect system performance. We conducted a stated choice experiment...

Demand for long-distance transport has been steadily increasing over the last years, worsening the environmental impact of the transport sector. Despite European governmental bodies and policy-makers directed considerable efforts towards the substitution of short-haul flights with greener rail alternatives, the desired results do not appear to...

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...

Ageing stock and extreme weather events pose a threat to the safety of infrastructure networks. In most countries, funding allocated to infrastructure management is insufficient to perform systematic inspections over large transport networks. As a result, early signs of distress can develop unnoticed, potentially leading to catastrophic...

To use efficiently the infrastructure of transportation networks, control strategies have been developed with the aim to reduce negative externalities, such as congestion and pollutant emissions. Previous works demonstrated that the maximum performance achievable by traffic control policies depends on the number and location of controllers...

The performance of ride-sourcing services such as Uber and Lyft is determined by the collective choices of individual drivers who are not only chauffeurs but private fleet providers. In such a context, ride-sourcing drivers are free to decide whether to accept or decline ride requests assigned by the ride-hailing platform. Drivers’ ride...

In traffic networks, some elements are more prone to suffer or to create disruptive situations, and the identification of these elements becomes a challenge due to the large number of possible threats. The following paper presents two new methodologies to identify and rank vulnerable and critical links of traffic networks. These methodologies...

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...

Transport network criticality analyses aim at identifying important segments in a transport network. Such studies are often based on the utilitarian principle, where the criticality of a segment is assessed based on its contribution to the aggregate performance of the transport system. To allow for the use of alternative moral principles, I...

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...

We model airport congestion contagion as an SIS spreading process on an airport transportation network to explain airport vulnerability. The vulnerability of each airport is derived from the US Airport Network data as its congestion probability. We construct three types of airline networks to capture diverse features such as the frequency and...
