Abstract

The paper is devoted to the timetabling problem and interval synchronization in urban public communication, which is considered as an important issue in urban transport networks with long overlapping route segments. The main objective of interval synchronization is to determine the timetable of lines sharing route segments, so that the waiting time between arrivals of consecutive buses can be balanced. Although the experts agree on the objective, different approaches to the interval synchronization problem in urban public communication can be observed. In this paper approaches to this problem are reviewed from the perspective of specific goals adopted, models developed for the problem, and methods used for solving them.

Keywords: interval synchronization, public transport, city transport, timetabling problem, transportation planning
