Designing an Electric Transit Bus Network

This study examines different approaches for designing an optimal network for electric transit buses. Mathematical models will be developed that will design an optimal network while minimizing both operator and passenger costs and maximizing ridership. The research will also consider the costs of infrastructure required for electric buses and will design an optimal network for the placement of chargers and electric bus infrastructure.
