Abstract

This paper aims to model the effects of ETIS market penetration on transit network performance (in terms of total passenger travel time), particularly when the transit services are unreliable and the transit network is congested. A new bi-level model is proposed to formulate ETIS market penetration effects on congested transit network. The upper-level problem is to minimize the total passenger travel time, which reflects the transit network performance. While the lower-level problem is a multi-class reliability-based stochastic user equilibrium transit assignment model. Transit congestion effects, such as elastic line frequencies and passenger overload delays, are also considered explicitly in the lower-level problem. Numerical results indicate that ETIS market penetration has significant impacts on transit network performance and passenger route choice behaviors.
