Review:

"The book is aimed squarely at transit researchers and practitioners. It fills an important void in the literature, as most existing material is exclusively quantitative or qualitative. This book bridges both, and leaves the reader with a sense of satisfaction and a desire to learn more about the topics at hand. The spirit of the first edition remains alive, with applied operations research as the vehicle through which most discussions are presented."
―Professor Daniel A. Rodriguez, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, USA

"... a single text that covers the full set of issues in transit operations and planning... includes concepts from theory and methodologies from practice... not only for students of transportation engineering and city planning at universities and in professional courses, as well as for transit agency managers and consultants, but also for PhD students and researchers."
―Professor Agostino Nuzzolo, Tor Vergata University of Rome
