This book describes both the latest research on transit vehicle and crew scheduling and the application of the methods by the transit industry. It also contains several papers on the use of technology and data collection methods for transit scheduling and planning. It has a section on the data base required for transit operation and planning and discusses the interrelation between scheduling and planning. This book is of interest to all researchers active in the area of transit operation and planning, as well as professionals active in the transit industry.
