Abstract [en]

Driver fatigue has been found to be highly associated with crash risk, and is also a major crash contributing factor for intercity bus drivers who often need to drive long hours and take shifts driving through the night. More and more research have reported that drivers’ shift plan, referred to as working pattern in the rest of this study, is associated with driver fatigue, and hence crash risk. A well-designed driver schedule was found to be beneficial in lowing crash risk, because a well-designed schedule can avoid overlong working or irregular working patterns, and keep drivers away from fatigue and drowsy driving. Nevertheless, there has been limited studies researching into how to manage drivers’ crash risk through proper scheduling because crash risk is determined by driving environment and driving time. Intercity bus companies, however, usually run different routes, and different routes contain different driving environment and driving time, which may have different level of crash risk to drivers. Therefore, it is challenging to quantify crash risk for different working pattern and schedule driver’s working pattern accordingly. As such, this study seeks to first quantify the level of crash risk for each working pattern, and minimize a fleet’s overall crash risk by rescheduling.
