Deriving all passenger flows in a railway network from ticket sales data

Abstract
In optimizing the Belgian national passenger train schedule, we use the quality criterium of total expected passenger travel time and try to minimize this. Using routing algorithms on the train service network, from ticket sales data, we determine the number of passengers on each local station to station ride action, on each in-station dwell action and also, on each potential transfer action. Once these are known, they can be used as constants in the subsequent timing optimization stage. We applied the first phase to the whole current Belgian passenger train service network and now continue on the timing optimization stage.
