In this paper we analyse a flexible real world-based model for designing school bus transit systems and note a number of parallels between this and other well-known combinatorial optimisation problems including the vehicle routing problem, the set covering problem, and one-dimensional bin packing. We then describe an iterated local search algorithm for this problem and demonstrate the sort of solutions that we can expect with different types of problem instance.
