• Short Description

    An essential step in evaluating existing or newly planned transport services is the determination of costs and revenues, for example, in the form of the line costing and revenue calculation.

    On the first day of this two-day course, you will learn how to determine various types of costs on the basis of a network and timetable modeled in PTV Visum.  An important role is played here by the line blocking procedures, in other words, estimating the number of required vehicles.

    On the second day, you will learn how to model a fare system, which will enable you to estimate the expected revenues and finally calculate the cost coverage.
