COST Action TU1004. TRANSITS, Modelling public transport passenger flows in the era of intellgent transport systems.
Áreas de investigación
  • Transporte
The challenge of sustainability that the European Union is facing calls for a shift of the demand for mobility from individual to collective means of transport. Hence more attractive public transport systems are required, above all in urban contexts. Since a shortage of funds for public transport is envisaged for the next years, efforts are needed to allocate money in the most effective and efficient way. Information and communications technology can increase infrastructure usage, improve safety, enhance travelers information and reduce transportation times as well as fuel consumption. Therefore advanced Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are becoming increasingly widespread as a mean of optimizing transit operations and infrastructure usage. However, models currently used to describe and predict passengers flows across the network do not take adequately into consideration the effects brought about by ITS on transit operations and on user behavior. Hence, the fundamental input for transport planning brought about by transit assignment is not completely meaningful and does not exploit to the full the amount of high quality data made available by ITS. This deficiency can delay the realization of the benefits of enhanced passenger information provision. This Action gathers together researchers in the field of transport and urban and regional planning, transport operators and authorities, consultancies and software developers. The main aim is to exchange knowledge and research in the field of transit assignment models, tailored to the era of Intelligent Transport Systems.
