The Rapid Transit Routing Problem
Ángel Marín, Luis Cadarso
In the context of a suburban operating railway company like is Renfe in Madrid, is important to be able to compete with other companies in an open market, for that they must provide a high service for the passengers with high efficient use of the train resource. The latter requires an adequate rolling stock if not efficient shunting and crew assignment procedures. Those need to know the optimal train routing given a set of trains flowing for specific type. The train routing problem determines the route flow for each specific train. The model has been tested in a concrete Madrid line.
