A Stackelberg game management model of the urban public transport

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • For the urban public transport management problem, based on analysis of the competition and cooperation relationship among operators on a common network, we establish a generalized Nash equilibrium game first; and then by analyzing the dynamic interaction between manager and operators, we propose a non-cooperative Stackelberg game model in which the manager is the leader and the operators are the followers. To solve the model, we transform it into a variational inequality problem, and the gap function method and the augmented Lagrange algorithm are applied. The given numerical experiments show the efficiency of the proposed model and algorithms.
