This thesis aims to contribute to the policy debate on the complexity of passenger rail markets and to provide recommendations for the Dutch market. An extensive literature review has been conducted to identify the policy issues that must be discussed when dealing with passenger rail markets. These issues are structured in a theoretical...

The human-machine interfaces (HMIs) in passenger cars have become more complex over the years, with touch screens replacing physical buttons and more options becoming available. This can result in multiple layers of menus that have to be navigated to perform simple tasks and therefore increase distraction. In addition to this, there is no...

The development of the global COVID-19 pandemic from 2020 onward has had significant impact on the world and specifically the maritime industry. Striking examples were COVID-19 outbreaks onboard the Diamond Princess cruise vessel and the U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier at the start of the pandemic. Contagious disease management...

This study investigates the impact of smartphone use on passengers' comfort during travel, focusing on train trips. The literature review reveals that smartphones have become the primary activity for train passengers, leading to discomfort and potential musculoskeletal issues, particularly in the neck, shoulders, arms, and back. The study aims...

With Schiphol Airport's flight numbers growing, working assets are essential to ensure on-time processes. The Passenger Boarding Bridge (PBB) is a critical asset in the airport's turnaround process. By ensuring that the asset is working properly, the operational processes can run efficiently. Currently, improving the reliability of the PBB when...

Through several contractions, stiff competition, and increasing passenger expectations, airports must evolve continually. One of the main avenues for this has been improving the efficiency of the security check- points, which are airports’ primary bottlenecks. Operational optimisation methods, such as resource and task scheduling are relatively...

Many transportation networks have complex infrastructures (road, rail, airspace, etc.). The quality of service in air transportation depends on weather conditions. Technical failures of the aircraft, bad weather conditions, strike of the company’s staff cause delays and disrupt traffic. How can the robustness of such networks be improved?...

Integrating emerging shared mobility with traditional fixed-line public transport is a promising solution to the mismatch between supply and demand in urban transportation systems. The advent of modular vehicles (MVs) provides opportunities for more flexible and seamless intermodal transit. The MVs, which have been implemented, are comprised...

This research delves into the transformative potential of self-driving vehicles by investigating their impact on passengers’ happiness. As autonomous transportation technology rapidly evolves, understanding the user experience within these vehicles becomes essential. To investigate the happiness of the self-driving vehicles’ passengers, which is...

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...

Webbers, Jesse (author)
Since the commercialisation of air travel, demand for air transport is increasing. Optimal system capacity utilisation at airports has therefore become crucial. As available resources such as land, buildings and human are scarce and airline tickets need to be financially affordable, airports optimise their system while maximising capacity within...

In the coming years, cities will have to deal with transportation challenges in terms of accessibility and sustainability. Passenger and freight transport are expected to increase, while the transport sector is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and congestion in cities. Although historically both ecosystems (passenger transport and...

The platform carrying capacity of urban rail transit stations is limited and overcrowding of the platform will lead to serious safety risks for passengers and trains. It is significant to collaborate on the optimization of passenger flow strategy and skip-stopping scheme to alleviate traffic pressure and ensure platform safety. This study...

Crowdshipping (CS) is an emerging form of freight transport that is expected to reduce the externalities of urban freight transport. The supply of CS services originates from people with an intention to travel, who can choose to engage in a parcel delivery service as incidental carrier. The popular expectation is that this consolidation of...

The periodic train timetable is one of the most widely used train timetables in passenger railway systems worldwide. However, how to expand well-coordinated daily train services from a single-period timetable pattern is rarely studied. This paper develops a multi-objective mixed integer programming model to solve the periodic train timetable...

Train passenger demand fluctuates throughout the day and week and these fluctuations are expected to increase due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to let train services, such as the line plan and timetable, match this fluctuating demand, insights are needed into how the demand is changing and for which periods the demand is relatively stable....

Theory and application of damage stability followed over the years two dissociated paths: static assessments and dynamic simulations. The first approach, being easy to apply and understand, has been preferred by ship designers and regulators; the second, more advanced and first-principle oriented, has been mainly reserved for research or high...

This paper deals with the train scheduling problem for metro networks taking into account time-dependent passenger origin–destination demands and train speed profiles. The aim is to adjust train schedules online according to time-dependent passenger demands so that passenger satisfaction and operational costs are jointly optimized. An...

Effective timetable scheduling strategies are essential for passenger satisfaction in urban rail transit networks. Most existing passenger-centric timetable scheduling approaches generate a timetable according to deterministic passenger origin-destination (OD) demands. As passenger OD demands in urban rail transit networks generally show a...
