Abstract:In the context of a heterogeneous fleet, the single-depot Vehicle Scheduling Problem is known as the Vehicle Type Scheduling Problem (VTSP). In this paper, we extend a VTSP model proposed in the literature to enable timetabling flexibility. Two strategies were developed to promote flexibility: aggregated trips and time windows. The former allows to aggregate two or more trips, occurring close in time, into a single one through the use of larger vehicle types, while the latter allows shifting the departure time… Show more
