In this chapter, an activity-based Stochastic User Equilibrium (SUE) transit assignment model is developed to investigate transit service scheduling problems in multi-modal transit networks. The proposed model can be used to generate short-term and long-term timetables for multimodal transit lines to aid transit operation and service planning. The model also captures the interaction between transit timetables and passengers’ activity- and travelscheduling behavior, as passengers’ activity choices and travel choices (departure time, activity/trip chain, activity duration, transit line and mode) are considered simultaneously under the SUE condition. A heuristic solution algorithm combining.
