In the Periodic Timetabling Problem, vehicle arrivals and departures need to be scheduled over a periodically repeating time horizon. Its relevance and applicability have been demonstrated by several real-world implementations, including the Netherlands railways and the Berlin subway. In this work, we consider the practical impact of two possible problem variations: firstly, how passenger paths are handled, and secondly, how line frequencies are included. In computational experiments on real-world and close-to real-world networks, we can show that passenger travel times can significantly benefit from extended models.
