MSC Thesis Opportunity - Unravelling Passenger Demand Patterns using Smart Card Data

MSc Thesis: Unravelling Passenger Demand Patterns using Smart Card Data

Smart card data from the Stockholm region is available for this project. Passengers tap-in on buses or at station gates in the case of metro and commuter train. No tap-outs are available but they have been inferred in a previous project, making is possible to estimate OD matrices and travel patterns. The master graduation project will involve the following one or more of the following activities, all in relation to the case of the smart card data in the Stockholm region: Analysing origin-destination demand patterns including spatial clustering; Segmenting passenger demand based on travel patterns; Test the tap-out inference technique by calibrating it against counts; Investigate the impacts of a major network change – new commuter train stations and frequencies - on passenger travel patterns.
