Holding strategies are among the most commonly used operation control strategies in transit systems. In this paper, a dynamic holding strategy is developed, which consists of two major steps: (1) judging whether an early bus should be held, and (2) optimizing the holding times of the held bus. A model based on support vector machine (SVM), which contains four input variables (time-of-day, segment,...
