Abstract

This paper focuses on the use of multicriteria methods as a tool for adequate decision making in urban transportation management aiming at reorganising bus transit system. In particular, it presents the main problems faced in the topic of multicriteria evaluation models, taking into account the different objectives and impacts, considering, appropriate performance indicators related to environment, safety, efficiency, quality, etc. This analysis has been performed on the urban network of Parma, a medium size Italian city, assuming as reference situation the existing public transit network and proposing three alternative networks.
