Participated in CASPT2018, the flagship scientific conference on public transport systems which took place in Brisbane, Australia on 23-25 July.
Have had the following contributions together with colleagues:
– Frequency and Vehicle Capacity Determination using a Dynamic Transit Assignment Model
– Stopping Pattern and Frequency Determination for a Multi-Modal Network
– A Holding Control Strategy for Diverging Bus Lines
– Using Passenger Flows to Determine Key Interchange Connections for Public Transport Synchronization
– Assessing Disruption Management Strategies in Rail-bound Urban Public Transport from a Passenger Perspective
– Is Flat Fare Fair? Equity Impact of Fare Scheme Change
– Value of Reliability for the Waiting Stage, In-vehicle Stage and Transfer Stage of Demand Responsive Transport (DRT) Services
– Determinants of Passengers’ Metro Car Choice Revealed through Automated Data Sources: A Stockholm Metro Case Study
– Passenger Route Choice and Assignment Model for Combined Fixed and Flexible Public Transport Systems
– Can Passenger Flow be Explained by Network Topology in Public Transport?

In conjunction with this conference, we have organized an affinity workshop between the Smart Public Transport Lab delegation from TU Delft and KTH and the Public Transport Research Group in Monash, Melbourne, led by Prof. Graham Currie.
The following studies which I have been involved in together with students and colleagues will be presented at TRB this year:
The Potential of Demand Responsive Transport as a Complement to Public Transport: An Assessment Framework and an Empirical Evaluation. (Session 293, Monday10:15 AM-12:00 PM Convention Center, 147A) Alonso-Gonzalez M., Liu T., Cats O., van Oort N. and Hoogendoorn S.
Individual, Travel and Bus Stop Characteristics Influencing Traverlers’ Safety Perceptions. (Session 556, Tuesday10:15 AM-12:00 PM Convention Center, 143B) Abenoza R.F., Ceccato V., Susilo Y. and Cats O.
Constructing Spatiotemporal Load Profiles of Transit Vehicles with Multiple Data Sources. (Session 649, Tuesday1:30 PM- 3:15 PM Convention Center, Hall E) Lou D., Bonnetain L., Cats O. and van Lint H.
Strategic Planning and Prospects of Rail-bound Demand Responsive Transit. (Session 660, Tuesday1:30 PM- 3:15 PM Convention Center, Hall E) Cats O. and Haverkamp J.
Demand-anticipatory Flexible Public Transport Service. (Session 784, Tuesday 8:00 AM- 9:45 PM Convention Center, Hall E) van Engelen M., Cats O., Post H. and Aardal K.
In addition, will be presiding:
Poster session 650 on Transit Service Disruptions: Impacts and Mitigation Measures (Tuesday 1:30 PM- 3:15 PM, Convention Center, Hall E)
Poster session 651 on Economic and Optimization Models for Integrated Service Planning (Tuesday 1:30 PM- 3:15 PM, Convention Center, Hall E)
In conjunction with the TRB conference, Jaime Soza Parra and I meet with Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority on Jan 11 to present and discuss the preliminary results of our evaluation of their headway-control experiment.
