In this paper, we present a new mutation operator, Hybrid Mutation (HPRM), for a genetic algorithm that generates high quality solutions to the Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP). The Hybrid Mutation operator constructs an offspring from a pair of parents by hybridizing two mutation operators, PSM and RSM. The efficiency of the HPRM is compared as against some existing mutation operators; namely, Reverse Sequence Mutation (RSM) and Partial Shuffle Mutation (PSM) for BERLIN52 as instance of
