Abstract: In view of the low efficiency of crew scheduling in urban rail traffic in our country and in accordance with the current urban rail transit crew operation rules & regulations,the urban rail transit set covering prob-lem (RTSCP)model was established.On the basis of the idea of column-generation,the column generation and Lagrange-relaxation (CGLR)algorithm was put forward,by which a smaller better-solved sub-set of crew tasks was generated and the complexity of calculation was reduced.In order to enhance the efficiency of solving RTSCP relaxation problems,the LR-Heuristic algorithm using the optimal Lagrange Multiplier as the heuristic information was adopted to replace the generally-used simplex algorithm.With the acquired Lagrange Multipli-er,the stochastic column fixing method was introduced to obtain feasible improved solutions to RTSCP prob-lems.Case study of a certain URT line was made.The results show that the model and algorithm are effective to solve crew pairing problems and to formulate good set covering schemes.
