LinTim is a scientific software toolbox that has been under development since 2007, giving the possibility to solve the various planning steps in public transportation. Although the name originally derives from "Lineplanning and Timtabling", the available functions have grown far beyond this scope.
What is LinTim able to?
Currently implemented are algorithms for line planning, timetabling, delay management and rolling stock circulation, amongst others. The integration into a common environment makes it possible to analyze the mutual influence of the planning steps and to illustrate it graphically. Thus solution properties can be found that would have been invisible to classical approaches. The gained results can be used to e.g. plan already the lines so to get a good timetable, or to plan timetables that are robust against delays.
