Railway systems are vulnerable to unexpected disruptions, which usually result in track blockages for a few hours. In practice, disruptions are handled manually and the resulting impact to passengers is rarely considered. To enable disruption management more efficiently, operator-friendly and passenger-friendly, this thesis develops mathematical models and solution methods for dynamic passenger assignment, timetable rescheduling, and the integrated passenger assignment with timetable rescheduling during disruptions.
