Public Transport in the era of MaaS [slides]
Driven by competition from MaaS start-ups and low ridership levels at peri-urban areas, public transport operators start using top-down approaches to maintain their competitiveness. This presentation will focus on the trends and challenges of public transport operators in the years to come and the potential gains in terms of operational efficiency by increasing the flexibility of typical public transport services. In the conclusion, ongoing works with examples of synchronizing the schedules of multiple lines and increasing the flexibility of schedules with the use of short-turning and interlining options will be discussed.

Dr. Konstantinos Gkiotsalitisgkiotsalitis
Konstantinos is an Assistant Professor in data science in transportation engineering at the Centre for Transport Studies (CTS) at the University of Twente. His research focuses on public transport modeling, demand prediction, tactical/operational planning, traffic operations and data-driven optimization. From 2012-2018 he was conducting transportation R&D at NEC Laboratories Europe (Heidelberg, Germany) with a specific focus on EU and APAC markets. He received his Ph.D. from the National Technical University of Athens on unveiling the mobility patterns of individuals and matching the transportation supply with the travel demand. He also received his bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (2010) and his MSc in Transport and Sustainable Development from Imperial College London and UCL (2012). 

He has been involved in several EU and international projects on smart cities, urban mobility, public transport operations, MaaS and logistics and has several patent applications in the aforementioned areas. He is also an active member of the IEEE community and the European Association for Research in Transportation (hEART).
