Abstract: The optimization method of regional scheduling based on the hub point in transit network is proposed by analyzing the current public transport scheduling problems and the development trend of regional transit. Through the set of the network edge and node property value, the highest number of bus line reaching node at the same time within the permissible error is the objective function; heuristic algorithm is used to solve the departure time and the time in station at each node of frequency for each line. Because all lines coordinated arriving, the transfer time of lines running on the network for passengers decreases. The total transfer cost of main nodes is reduced to achieve the transfer optimization of lines in the public transport network.
