Summer School "Integrated Planning in Public Transport"

Learn how to design and operate a punlic transport system

Public transport is the most efficient "sharing system" available to us in densely populated areas. A large number of people can be transported with just a few vehicles and vehicle kilometres. Future Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) offerings that enable individualized transport with shared vehicles will be attractive to travellers, but will lead to additional vehicle kilometres. Therefore, it will remain an important task of transport planning to provide an attractive public transport supply offering alternatives to private or shared cars. This task leads to the overall topic of the summer school: How to design and operate a public transport service that is as good as possible?

The summer school will present methods to design and evaluate public transport plans covering the steps of line planning, timetable planning and vehicle scheduling. It will look at methods to facilitate access to public transport by providing routing information and by addressing disturbances in the daily operation. The Summer School aims at introducing participants to practical and mathematical methods for planning and optimising public transport.
