The goal is to develop a bus transportation system for rural areas in which buses can change their routes based on demand from bus stops.

In urban areas, there is a large number of bus routes which are fixed since they visit each and every stop as pre-planned. High population density also requires them to be frequent to meet the needs. In less populated rural areas bus transportation should be adapted to their special requirements. More specifically: A small number of bus routes which are flexible and can change their routes so they only visit the stops with a demand for transportation.

The goal of the thesis is to develop an approach that addresses this issue and to implement it. Working knowledge of graph theory is a plus.
