Nowadays public transport performance is mostly ruled by a set schedule which does not evolve day by day, independently from external factors that may have significant impact on its performance. Although most capital cities around the world have a complex public transport network; introducing dynamic schedules would optimise their service performance. Adverse weather conditions and casual traffic congestions influence negatively on traffic congestion in big cities, therefore the performance of public transport networks may decrease unless the public transport operators incorporate appropriate changes into their planning, scheduling and management decisions. Today, as adverse weather conditions and casual traffic congestions are difficult to predict, they are not considered in public transport scheduling and management decisions.
