Public transportation graph: A graph theoretical model of public transportation network for efficient trip planning


The presentation and usage of traditional graphs is very important for effective and fast solution of routing in public transportation. However, the traditional graph approach is unable to consider the passenger requests such as total travel time, minimum number of transfer and total distance of travel without pre-processing and/or post-processing. Moreover, the vehicles are not represented on traditional graph. In this paper, after analyzing the different kind of graphs, we propose a novel graph named as public transportation graph. The proposed graph models the public transportation system and considers distance, waiting time, travel time, self-transportation and number of transfers simultaneously for efficient trip planning. In this way, passenger requests can be met without pre-processing and post-processing. In addition, the vehicles are also considered and demonstrated in the proposed graph.
