A Case Study: School Bus Routing

David Simchi-Levi, Xin Chen, Julien Bramel

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


We now turn our attention to a case study in transportation logistics. We highlight particular issues that arise when implementing an optimization algorithm in a real-life routing situation. The case concerns the routing and scheduling of school buses in the five boroughs of New York City.
