Abstract

This paper proposes a route selection model based on the Fuzzy Logic approach in multimodal transport network in order to find the most optimal route among the set of given route alternatives so that transport route planners can make a route selection decision efficiently and effectively. The proposed approach uses the transport data of time, cost and reliability for each alternative route in order to measure the degree of transport route performance. This research also conducted a case study in order to demonstrate applicability of the proposed model in real-world applications.
