OD-Dependent Train Scheduling for an Urban Rail Transit Line

In this chapter, in order to capture more detailed information about passengers we consider train scheduling with origin–destination-dependent (OD-dependent ) passenger demands for an urban rail transit line. A stop-skipping strategy is adopted to reduce the total passenger travel time and the energy consumption. The resulting train scheduling problem is a mixed integer nonlinear programming problem. A bi-level approach and a limited bi-level approach are proposed to solve this problem. These two approaches are compared through a case study inspired by real data from the Beijing Yizhuang subway line. The results discussed in this chapter are based on Wang et al. (IEEE Trans Intell Transp Syst 15:2658–2670, 2014) ; Wang et al. (Proceedings of the 93rd annual meeting of the transportation research board, Washington, DC, 2014) .
