OPS Bus Scheduling: A Heuristic Approach to a Three-Tier Multi-Depot Vehicle Routing Problem With Inter-Depot Routes
Date of Award
Dr. Fabio Vitor
Omaha Public Schools (OPS) currently uses a Two-Tier Bus Transportation System and is investigating whether switching to a Three-Tier Bus Transportation System would be cost effective by reducing the number of buses and bus drivers OPS uses. This project aims to develop an algorithm that would allow OPS to test whether a Three-Tier system is more cost effective. The “Bus Scheduling Project” is composed of two different software components: a geographical analyzer and a heuristic bus route generator.
