Public Transport Systems: Passenger behaviour and network robustness

On 21 February 2020, TRAIL PhD researcher Ding Luo will defend his PhD thesis “Data-driven Analysis and Modeling of Passenger Flows and Service Networks for Public Transport Systems” at Delft University of Technology. The defence is public, and you are invited to join.

Moreover, on the occasion of this public defence, TRAIL and TU Delft have set up a seminar on “Public Transport Systems: Passenger behaviour and network robustness”. The rapid deployment of smart card fare collection systems across the world facilitate the analysis of passenger behaviour using passively collected disaggregate revealed preferences data. Notwithstanding, extracting knowledge from public transport data involves challenges and requires a range of inferences and analytics. Applications of such analysis include network loading models, real-time crowding predictions and market segmentation. In addition, complex networks and clustering techniques increasingly inspire the analysis of public transport systems. In this seminar, experts will share theoretical, methodological and advanced applications related to passenger behaviour and network robustness.
