A Computer Model of Bus-Waiting Problem

Abstract:

Article Preview

This paper investigates a bus waiting problem quantitatively by building a mathematical model. The problem is when a passenger is between two stations, which station to choose is favorable for him to catch a bus? Here, several related factors are discussed to explore their influences on the bus-waiting problem, including the original bus position, the average velocity of bus, the length between two bus stations, passenger’s position and his velocity. Finally, some important conclusions are drawn.
