This demand reflects the business, industrial, cultural, educational, social and recreational transportation needs of the community. It is the purpose of this component to set appropriate timetables for each transit route to meet the variation in the public demand. Determination of timetables is performed on the basis of passenger counts, and must comply with service frequency constraints. The vehicle scheduling component appearing in Figure 1 is to schedule vehicles to trips according to given timetables.
