Optimal Frequency Allocation for an Intelligent Subway System

The researchers propose to build an intelligent mechanism within a computerized subway system that will adjust frequency of services according to observed variable demand. Operating costs are generally associated with the number of one-way trips per day per metro line while social cost is measured as the total waiting time of all passengers per day. The system will automatically seek optimal performance by minimizing total costs.
