Abstract:
In this paper is a solution to the School Bus Routing Problem by the application of a bio-inspired algorithm in the vertical transfer of genetic material to offspring or the inheritance of genes by subsequent generations. The vertical transfer algorithm or Genetic algorithm uses the clusterization population pre-selection operator, tournament selection, crossover-k operator and an intelligent mutation operator called mutation-S. The use of the bio-inspired algorithm to solve SBRP instances show good results about Total Bus Travel Distance and the Number of Buses with the Routes.
