DescriptionThe Technical University of Denmark, in cooperation with multiple
partners, has commenced a large scale research project, entitled "IPTOP",
concerning the scheduling and integration of transport in the
Copenhagen metropolitan area. A key task in this research is to investigate
the connections between transit services (vehicles) and the timetabling of a very large network where a large proportion of travelers make one or more connections as part of their journey. Many of
these connections are between bus and rail services, which have very different delay distributions and network correlations.
This presentation reviews the project goals and the tools available for simulation of rail and bus services. The final tool selections for IPTOP will be revealed along with the rationale for their selection. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of whether the rail and bus networks will be simulated individually or simultaneously. Some preliminary delay data characteristics will also be discussed in the presentation.
