Abstract

This paper describes the Park & Ride Integrated System, a new concept of demand-responsive transport system, and the underlying problems to be solved to manage this system. We first present its functionalities and its global architecture. The first feature we examine is the real-time aspects having to be dealt with. We then propose a routing algorithm to compute itineraries in order to satisfy the demands. The input of this algorithm consists among others of travel times whose prediction is in itself another problem of interest. Finally, we present simulations results performed with the software developed.
