Amini Toosi Vahid
An integer linear programming model for bus rapid transit network design

Coauthor: Najjar Vazifedan Ala


Public transportation plays an important role in most populated cities. In Iran, the majority of people use public bus transportation within the cities. Thus, the quality of bus network services is very important. Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is a high capacity public transit solution that can improve urban mobility.
For several decades, operations research (OR) has been successfully applied to solve a wide variety of optimization problems in public transit. This paper represents an integer linear programming model to design a BRT network. The model attempts to maximize the coverage of public transportation demand. The model has been implemented to the design of BRT network in Mashhad, the second largest city of Iran. The required actual data have been collected and fed to the model. The resulting network determines the BRT routes, the BRT stations and the schedules.
