DFG - FOR 2083: Integrated Planning For Public Transportation

Universität Göttingen / TU Dortmund / RWTH Aachen / Universität Stuttgart / Universität Halle-Wittenberg / Karlsruher Institut für Technologie


In this project, we want to consider an integrated planning approach on public transportation to improve the quality of public transportation systems with regard to customer satisfaction and system costs. Additionally, we want to derive solutions that are robust with respect to delays. Our goals are:

Using approaches of discrete optimization, algorithm engineering and public transportation simulation, we work on innovative procedures for improving the planning process in public transportation. The achieved results are illustrated on different demonstrators, e.g. a large realistic example case.
