Abstract

The ongoing competition between bus and railway systems in Hungarian long-distance public transport is a current problem. Long term sustainability and efficiency in passenger transport require a balanced transport policy. These subsectors need to complement each other, not compete. The parallel bus and railway links, which are present in most relations of Hungary, can result in a competition. This research analyze traveling parameters (distance and time) in case of parallel long-distance transport systems and evaluate them with a mathematical method for long term environmental and economic sustainability optimization. This investigation's hypothesis is to define difference segments of optimization gear to travel time and travel distance.
