Abstract: A public transport network serves the society effectively if it evolves in time according to the changes in the population. Urban transportation problems of Thiruvananthapuram, a typical Indian city, is mainly due to the lack of evolution of the planned network adhering to the rapid urbanization and motorization. These issues are managed by constructing more infrastructure, which act as the catalyst to major urban problems, rather than addressing the cause. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the public transport operational characteristics of a typical Indian City (Thiruvananthapuram) emphasizing on link load on the selected route. In this paper, a methodology is proposed for line planning problem which includes optimization of public transport lines using operator costs, user costs and crowding on the bus. It also includes the determination of peak and off-peak frequencies of the existing network lines considering the critical demand. © 2020 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.
