Passenger Transport Systems: Networks, Operations and Behavioral Models

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Conceptualize research problems from the area of passenger transportation along the dimensions strategic – tactical – real-time and network – operations – behavior;
  • Devise and discuss basic principles of different methodological approaches to solving passenger transport related problems, such as graph representation, optimization, heuristics, and simulation;
  • Motivate their modelling choices, position them in relation to alternative approaches and examine their suitability and shortcomings;
  • Develop a research proposal addressing a scientific research problem in the domain of passenger transport systems, incorporating concepts and methods pertaining to networks, operations and behavior.
