Robust bus bridging service design under rail transit system disruptions
Journal article, 2019

This paper focuses on designing robust bus bridging service in response to the rail transit system disruptions. We firstly develop a path-based multi-commodity flow formulation to bus bridging service design. Then its robust counterpart is formulated to incorporate bus travel time uncertainty. The column generation procedure is devised to solve this problem efficiently. At last, we carry out case studies to demonstrate its applicability and promising effects. The results reveal that our approach can significantly reduce the total cost and number of stranded passengers in disruption events. Besides, the rise of bus travel time variation will deteriorate the performance of bus bridging service.
