Demand Bus System for New Residential Area in Japan 720218

In recent years, many papers have dealt with the demand responsive bus system as a promising new transportation system for urban and suburban areas.
In this paper, the authors show the algorithms of a demand bus system that is able to control trips from many origins to many destinations and their simulation techniques. A case study of this system in a newly developed Japanese residential area is illustrated. From an investigation of the case study results, this system seems to be applicable. The authors have developed a digital, fully automatic communication and control system and a bus body design for the implementation of demand bus service. An outline is described in the latter part of the paper.
