Computer-Aided Scheduling in Urban Mass Transit Companies: Past, Present and Future

  • Josef Hoffstadt
Part of the Lecture Note in Economics Mathematical Systems book series (LNE, volume 308)

Abstract

Urban mass transit companies are forced today, as they have been in the past, to look for new methods to reduce the conflict between demand for retention or even expansion, of available services and decreasing subsidies. This situation results from different interests of the groups concerned, for example, transport authority management, politicians and passengers; it remains insoluble.
