This volume gives an overview on new theoretical approaches on computer-aided methods for strategic and operational planning in public transport. The papers of this volume cover the most important steps of the complete process of planning and operational control in public transport and public mass transit. Readers of this book obtain detailed information on current developments in vehicle and crew scheduling and in solving such problems in practice. Interesting results in scheduling theory are shown, using procedures for solving combinatorial problems with more complex structures. Furthermore, experiences in the application of specific software tools are presented.
