Abstract:   (45003 Views)
Bus network design is an important problem in public transportation. The main step to this design, is determining the number of required terminals and their locations. This is an especial type of facility location problem, a large scale combinatorial optimization problem that requires a long time to be solved. Branch & bound and simulated annealing methods have already been used for solving Urban Bus Terminal Location Problem(UBTLP) that first method requires much time and second method doesn’t reach desired solution. In this paper, a Genetic Algorithm is suggested for solving the problem. The main advantages of proposed algorithm are reaching better solution and taking less time. The demonstrated results have shown that proposed Genetic Algorithm can be an efficient and confident approach for solving UBTLP. For verification of proposed methodology, two illustrative practical examples are solved and obtained outcomes are reported.
