International audience; This work proposes a stochastic model for integrating service and maintenance policies in order to address the queuing problem and the cost of maintenance for public transport systems. The authors adopt the following approaches: (i) a cost-model that considers the uncertainty of passengers’ plans to compute the waiting time; (ii) a maintenance cost-model which take into account two different maintenance policies (periodic block-type and age-based); and (iii) a bi-objective optimisation process to bring together the service and maintenance policies. Finally, the proposed work is applied to a massive-urban ropeway belonging to a public transportation system, in which the current service policy has been evaluated, considering the established transportation operation.
