Operations of Modular Transit Vehicles under Oversaturated Traffic
Dynamic capacity design holds promise for reducing the energy consumption of urban mass transit systems, e.g., urban rail transits, bus rapid transits, shared autonomous vehicles. In this study, we investigate the joint design problem of dispatch headway and vehicle capacity for a transit system under oversaturated traffic. Two optimization models are proposed to solve a shuttle problem from both microscopic and macroscopic views, and the results will be presented.
