This paper has introduced the TOD mode into the optimization design of all levels of urban public transport hubs, and probed TOD mode that effectively combines land use and urban public transport hubs. A TOD planning model for the land use of urban public transport hub was built by means of a multiple objective mathematical programming model. Four objectives were considered: to increase the express public transport capacity, to improve the environment of the planned region, to maximize the returns on investment, to ensure the balance of mixed land use. The model can be used for designing the rate of public transport hub area. The Shisheng public station area in Wuhan is chosen as case study to illustrate the model application and planning results. The result indicates that the model would be efficient in practice. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland. Source

Urban transport database (UTD) is one of the most important bases for academic research and management in transport sector. In this paper, comparison analysis between international and domestic urban transport database was implemented. Based on the Chinese practices, the objectives, framework and key technologies of the Urban Transport Database were presented. The upload and download mechanism of the urban transport data was presented as well. It will provide an efficient technical support for UTD construction in China. © (2011) Trans Tech Publications.

Bus networks occupy less space in city streets, and compared to other kinds of public transportation, need less investment cost. An accurate bus operation schedule which considers actual arriving and departure time is essential for bus companies, due to high passenger demand. In real-world cases, there are daily differences in the frequency of bus dispatch from the terminal, and headway of buses between each bus bay along their route, depending on peak hour traffic and resulting congestion. In this research we studied effective parameters for preparation of proper bus operation scheduling. Measures are essential to ensure that buses receive priority over other traffic, if they are to be attractive to passengers. Finally, we suggest some solutions for lessening interval time in headway and frequency scheduling for bus services. Data obtained from an actual bus operation in the city of Tehran in Iran was used in this study. © (2011) Trans Tech Publications. Source

In bus networks there are many stations used for boarding and alighting passengers along the bus route. In designing bus stop location three sides approach to be considered; the big picture, street side and curb side. Apiece of three sides have directly affects in the bus scheduling. The effectiveness of bus operation will depend on number of bus stops and its spacing. Basically, bus stations have two kinds: bus stop, use to service passengers in one bus line and bus interchange (terminal) use to share station between some bus lines. This article described a survey on bus stop location efficiency in bus operation where study on bus stop location in three points: near-side, far-side and mid-block were considered. It has been highlighted bus stop location in situation mid-block has higher efficiency than others situations. © (2011) Trans Tech Publications. Source

Nowadays, the total volume of passenger trip demand has increased due to population and economic growth. In this situation, government policy encourages people to use public transportation for inter-city trips. In the meantime, buses are the most widely used in transit technology today. The most important issue in buses service is timely arrival. Due to the limited capacity of the streets and increasing car production, we cannot devote a specific lane to bus operation to separate their operation from other traffic. Generally, actual arrival time of buses in comparison to planned arrival time occurs in three scenarios: sooner, on-time, and later. This article represents different scheduling model to achieve timely arrival. For this purpose we tested two different scenarios by actual public bus operation. The data was obtained in the city of Tehran, since Iran was used in this study. © (2011) Trans Tech Publications. Source
