Timetable Design


The Timetable Design module allows trip building optimization. The Timetable Design module within the MAIOR Transit Scheduling Suite is a powerful software application that enables transit companies and agencies to simultaneously manage the timetables for multiple routes and patterns, while always keeping the overall result under control.

The Timetable Design software module provides tools that allow easier identification of the most suitable timetable. The Timetable Design software application has a control panel where the transit service summary is always displayed in terms of:

-Number of trips

-Total hours and kilometers of driving time

-Recovery times

-Dwell times

An advantageous feature of the Timetable Design software module is the availability of graphic and tabular data views each contain the same data, and the users can work with the view with which they are most comfortable. Data includes revenue service trips’ details that specify the arrival and departure times at each time point.

Timetable Design Algorithm


The Timetable Design software solution is enhanced by the MAIOR Transit Scheduling Suite’s embedded optimization algorithm that automatically generates cost saving timetable solutions.

The Timetable Design algorithm aims to optimize trips and resources based on the following criteria:

-Headways: Using as input the desired headways by time bands

-Vehicles: Using as input the vehicle’s availability by time bands

-Passengers: Using as input the total number of passengers that shall be transported by time bands

-Trips: Using as input the desired number of trips by time bands

The Timetable Design software interface checks that the planned service does not violate the constraints imposed on the network, ensuring a conflict-free service result.

Depending on the transit company’s needs, calendars can be created and tailored as desired to build different trip operating days (for example, special Wednesday market trips). The calendars are custom-built, with a start and finish date and weekly frequency validity of the trips (for example, a Monday-Friday calendar from Sept 1st, 2020 to June 10th, 2021, or a Wednesday calendar in the same period for a special event). Transit companies and agencies can customize exceptions as well.
