BRT+ Monthly Webinar: the limited-stop bus service design problem with stochastic passenger assignment

This session of BRT webinar will be presented by Homero Larrain on Wednesday 29th November at 07:00 EST.

The limited-stop bus service design problem is a very challenging non-linear problem, whose solution must at the same time account for bus capacity and reflect user behavior. Using a bi-level approach, we improve the solution time of a previous algorithm and allow for stochastic assignment, which is arguably more realistic and robust than the commonly used deterministic assignment.

Homero Larrain is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Transport Engineering and Logistics of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. He got a PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering from this university in 2014.
He is a member of the BRT+ research center and a collaborator in CEDEUS.

Global Mobility Research

This Meeting of the Minds' blog monthly releases interviews of global transportation researchers from the VREF's Future Urban Transport Program Network.


This CityFix series, produced by the WRI (World Ressources Institute) Ross Center for Sustainable Cities and supported by the VREF, discusses walking and cycling in cities with a special focus on low- and middle-income countries.

Each year the Håkan Frisinger Foundation for Transportation Research awards a scholarship to a prominent researcher.
