Abstract
As a green mode, public transportation makes great contribution in alleviating urban traffic congestion and promoting sustainable urban development. In the process of giving priority to the development of public transport, how to ease or solve the bus bunching is always a hot issue in the field of public transport management research. Most recently, the authors suggested a combined strategy to actively alleviate bus bunching under dynamic traffic condition from a tactical perspective, where, however, the average passenger arrival rate is assumed to be fixed. Seeing that this assumption may be unrealistic, this paper relaxes this assumption and then establishes a mathematical model focusing on departure interval optimization under dynamic passenger demand and traffic condition. A multi-round compass search algorithm is employed to solve the model. Numerical example is conducted to perform the algorithm and management strategy. It is founded that both algorithm and strategy is effective.
