Simulation and analytical evaluation of bus redesign alternatives in transit deserts with ride-hail presence

This project will undertake the evaluation of the Brooklyn bus network redesign proposed by Eric Goldwyn and colleagues at the Marron Institute. It will include specific attention to the presence of ride hail fleets (through analytical models and exploratory consideration of MATSim extensions) in justifying stop spacing and route allocations, particularly for areas regarded as transit deserts where the local population is especially vulnerable to vicious cycles impacting transit performance.
