PhD Project

Robust timetable design based on passengers’ behaviour and dynamic pricing

With the increasing demand for railway transportation there is a significant need to improve the robustness of railway timetables. Disruptions and disturbances happen daily and designing such timetables is crucial to guarantee the performance and efficiency of the whole network. In the literature, such problems are tackled mostly from operators point of view. However, users’ (passengers’) satisfaction is equally important to maintain the service level.
