  • Publication number: 20190228358
    Abstract: A schedule proposal system includes a data server for storing information collected at a plurality of stations and related to passengers and a computing server storing a program for predicting the numbers of passengers who wait for trains and a program for determining an increase or reduction in the number of trains to be operated. The computing server executes, at predetermined time intervals, the program for predicting the numbers of passengers who wait for trains and the program for determining an increase or reduction in the number of trains to be operated. The program for predicting the numbers of passengers who wait for trains predicts, based on the information related to passengers, the numbers of passengers who wait for trains at the plurality of stations in a predetermined time zone.
