Zone-based Nottingham Bus Route Optimisation Instance
The present datasets contain instance data and results which were presented in the publications "Zone-based public transport route optimisation in an urban network" by Philipp Heyken Soares, 2020 in "Public Transport" (Springer) More detailed information can be found in the README files. ZiP files you find in the folders contain the entire data of the respective folders to simplify the download. Further included is a python program to evaluate route sets with the here provided instance data in the given format.
Steps to reproduce
For detailed information on how this instance data set was generated and how they can be reproduced for other study areas, please see the following publications: - for node positions, node-to-node travel times, selection of terminal nodes, real-world route set and node-based demand matrix (without cross border demand) see "An Adaptive Scaled Network for Public Transport Route Optimisation" by Philipp Heyken Soares, Christine L. Mumford, Kwabena Amponsah and Yong Mao, 2019 in "Public Transport" (Springer) - for zone/zone-centroid location, centroid-node walking times, zone-based demand matrix, and how cross-border demand was included see "Zone-based public transport route optimisation in an urban network" by Philipp Heyken Soares, 2020 in "Public Transport" (Springer)
