Abstract: Demand responsive collective transportation might be a solution to serve thin flows that occur when the average demand per time unit for travel between particular locations is small. Small capacity and/or specially equipped vehicles are deployed to serve low population density areas and mobility impaired passengers. The variability of the demand and the low vehicle capacity require daily optimal planning of routes. The cost for daily tours heavily depends on the temporal and spatial distribution of the demand. This paper proposes a co-simulation model to evaluate the profitability of thin flow service providers over multiple years of operation under specific condition of public compensation (subsidizing).
