The paper presents a modeling framework for solving the service planning
problem for Taiwan high speed rail.
The framework explicitly considers both
the passenger's and the operator's viewpoints in a bi-level program, where a
train demand model is the lower level problem.
The passenger's choice of train
service is formulated as a route choice problem on a service network and with a
generalized cost function.
In vehicle travel time, out of vehicle travel time, out
of pocket cost, and crowding condition are the variables in the cost function.
Three models, which are deterministic user equilibrium, stochastic user
equilibrium, and deterministic user optimal with crowding effect, are tested in
the study with practical data.
The three models result in quite different choice
