With the growing travel needs and the development of internet technology, on-demand transportation services have become very popular in current daily life. Over the last decade, significant progress has been made on vehicle fleet digital, especially for transportation. Recently, there has been increasing interest in digitizing and dispatching public transportation, such as efficient relocation of idle vehicles from operating routes of low demand to those of high demand has been an important problem. Relocating idle vehicles to operate routes with high trip demand potential could significantly improve the serving ratio.
Improving transit service reliability has been a long-standing objective in the transit industry, most of the fleet travels take place in highly congested urban areas, which makes travel times highly variable. Scheduling and dispatching system can handle the daily operations of transit services that accept daily inputs and, in minimal time, produces very cost-effective and reliable schedules. In addition, the scheduling system has the ability to be used as a simulation tool that allows transit operators to assess the feasibility and performance of proposed transit services before implementation.
Transit providers will be able to employ operations control measures in a more systematic and responsive fashion, with expected improvements in service reliability and reductions in operating costs. Passengers will benefit from more reliable service, which is expected to result in reductions in their waiting times.
