External and internal factors can cause disturbances or disruptions in daily train operations, leading to deviations from official timetables and passenger delays. As a result, efficient train timetable rescheduling (TTR) methods are necessary to restore disrupted train services. Although TTR has been a popular research topic in recent years,...

With the strong backing and advocacy from the EU for railway transport, it is crucial to focus on innovative and efficient technologies to maintain service quality. In daily train operations, traffic uncertainties lead to perturbations, which may result in two types of track conflicts: disturbances and disruptions.<br/><br/>In the current...

This research proposes a new concept of electric bus with adjustable interior modules. By installing different modules, it can adjust both its internal layout and battery capacity spontaneously to make itself resemble an electric city bus or an electric regional bus when it is needed. It makes use of difference between peak times of regional...

Transfer optimization in public transport (PT) networks can be achieved through coordinated timetabling and vehicle scheduling. Traditionally, the coordinated timetabling problem is solved first before proceeding to the vehicle scheduling problem. The integration of these two problems can help further reduce the total operation cost and...

The railway timetable rescheduling problem is a challenging problem in both industry and academia. It is required to calculate a feasible and relatively good timetable within a limited time to reduce the negative impact of disturbances or disruptions. The railway timetable rescheduling problem is typically formulated as a mixed integer linear...

Timetables determine the service quality for passengers and the energy consumption of trains in metro systems. In metro networks, a timetable can be made by optimizing train departure frequencies for different periods of the day. Typically, the optimization problem that arises from optimizing train departure frequencies in metro networks...

Real-time timetable scheduling is an effective way to improve passenger satisfaction and to reduce operational costs in urban rail transit networks. In this paper, a novel passenger-oriented network model is developed for real-time timetable scheduling that can model time-dependent passenger origin-destination demands with consideration of a...

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...

The collaborative design of the timetable and dynamic-capacity allocation plan of emerging modular vehicles (MVs) is a promising solution to the mismatch between supply and demand in public transportation studies; however, such efforts are subject to high-level dynamics and uncertainty inherent in operating environments. In this study, we...

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...

This paper presents a joint optimization of the timetable, bus formation, and vehicle scheduling in a flexible public transport (PT) system that utilizes autonomous modular vehicles (AMVs). In this system, AMVs have the capability to detach or join with each other at intermediate stops along the route to dynamically adjust the bus formation ...

ILP-based solvers that intake a line planning, an infrastructure and a set of constraints and then output a cyclic train timetable have been researched extensively in the world of trains. However, these types of solvers are not able to automatically output a timetable when the problem gets overconstrained and no feasible solution exists.<br/><br...

Despite advanced communication, monitoring, and control facilities, train operations are still subject to uncertainties that can disturb train services, cause delay to multiple trains, and propagate through the network. One option is to mitigate delay propagation in the timetable design by adding buffer time to the minimum difference between the...

As the demand for the railways is expected to raise in the future, researchers are looking for ways to improve the railway capacity to increase the transport ability. Virtual coupling is a new solution based on the moving block technology, which further shortens train separation from absolute braking distance to relative braking distance. This...

Railways in Europe need to reduce CO<sub>2</sub> emissions and energy usage to contribute to sustainability. One of the measures that railway undertakings can apply with low investment cost and both high reductions in CO<sub>2</sub> emission and energy consumption, is energy-efficient train trajectory optimization. Another efficient measure is...

Employing regenerative braking in trains contributes to reducing the amount of energy used, especially when applied to commuter trains and to those used on very dense suburban networks. This paper presents a method to fine-tune the periodic timetable to improve the utilization of regenerative energy and to shave power peaks while maintaining...

Unexpected disruptions occur in the railways on a daily basis, which are typically handled manually by experienced traffic controllers with the support of predefined contingency plans. When several disruptions occur simultaneously, it is rather hard for traffic controllers to make rescheduling decisions, because (1) the predefined contingency...

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...

Unexpected disruptions commonly occur in the railway network, causing delays, and extra cost for operators and inconvenience for passengers by missing their connection and facing overcrowded trains. This paper presents a passenger-centric approach for timetable rescheduling in case of disruption. We study a railway system in which passengers...
