Generation of test data for Scheduled Paratransit Transport Systems

G. Dikas, I. Minis

In this report we describe the creation of random test data for the case of Scheduled Paratransit Transport Systems (SPTS). SPTS focus on flexible public transport services that address the needs of the elderly, as well as of people with a disability. In this flexible transport services a bus operating in a public transport route may diverge from its nominal path to pick-up passengers with limited mobility and drop them off at their destination. The generator described in this report aims to create appropriate test instances that simulate practical problems within three distinct environments: a) Urban, b) Suburban, and c) Rural. The data generator uses special techniques to produce test instances that incorporate the characteristics of each of the three aforementioned environments.
