2011 Public Transport  
now triennial CASPT conference series serves as a forum for the international community of researchers and practitioners to address all aspects of public transport operations and systems planning. Faced with the challenges of economic globalization and environmental sustainability, the need for effective and low-energy transport is more urgent than ever. The papers in this Special Issue cover significant contributions in advancing both theory and modeling for optimizing public transit
