The optimal control models of interurban bus transport

M. G. Medvedev, L. M. Oleschenko


The models for calculating the number of buses of different types depending on the variable passenger time and a specified interval of vehicles, minimizing the expenses of motor company which is considered to be optimal for the carrier and the passenger range of buses on the route. Analysing the influence of the speed of vehicles on the total costs of motor transport enterprises. The proposed model can be used to make effective management decisions regarding the organization of the rolling stock for enterprises passenger transport
