Abstract: As metropolitan areas grow, the need to travel by the populace has increased the burden on the transport systems, leading to increased traffic congestion and environmental concerns. In this paper, we discuss some game-theoretic models that can be used to investigate the competitive situation when several service providers offer public transit services. The competition among the operators can be modelled by a class of games called potential games, and we discuss mathematical programmes that can be used to find the Nash equilibria for these games. By examining the equilibrium solutions, we can investigate the relative merits and tradeoffs for different structures of the transit networks, and the interplay between the services offered and the overall ridership of the system.
