AL KRDY, MAJED; Tüydeş Yaman, Hediye; Department of Civil Engineering (2022-9)
As urban diversity grows in cities, so does the heterogeneity of public transit (PT) travel behavior. To accommodate for usage heterogeneity, a deeper understanding of travel behavior beyond descriptive analysis is necessary, which can be performed using smart card data (SCD), if available. In this study, K-means clustering algorithm combined with a data mining technique that includes unsupervised learning clustering algorithm is proposed to detect different demand segments among PT users based on their dai...
