Delay-Robustness of Transfer Patterns in Public Transportation Route Planning

pdf-format:


Abstract

Transfer pattern routing is a state-of-the-art speed-up technique for finding optimal paths which minimize multiple cost criteria in public transportation networks. It precomputes sequences of transfer stations along optimal paths. At query time, the optimal paths are searched among the stored transfer patterns, which allows for very fast response times even on very large networks. On the other hand, even a minor change to the timetables may affect many optimal paths, so that, in principle, a new computation of all optimal transfer patterns becomes necessary. In this paper, we examine the robustness of transfer pattern routing towards delay, which is the most common source of such updates. The intuition is that the deviating paths caused by typical updates are already covered by original transfer patterns. We perform experiments which show that the transfer patterns are remarkably robust even to large and many delays, which underlines the applicability and reliability of transfer pattern routing in realistic routing applications.
