  • In this paper a model is described in order to determine the number of lines of a public transportation service, the layout of their lines amongst a set of candidates, their service capacity, and the resulting assignment of passengers to these facilities so as to minimize the total costs of the system. The model takes into account the delays for passengers that queue at the stations reflecting congestion effects of the transport service system and also, the abandonment of waiting queues at stations by passengers. Passengers are assumed to choose the lines they ride on by selecting the most convenient service line following a user equilibrium formulation.
