The paper presents a description of a heuristic iterative algorithm for an urban transit bus network. Inputs of the algorithm are demands of passangers defined by a demand matrix and company cost. The algorithm is divided into three phases. The first phase suggests the skeleton of the bus network by the demand matrix. The second phase defines express and main lines of the transit bus network and the third phase designs fedder lines of the transit bus network. This algorithm has been applied for Public Transit Netwok Design of the city of Rome. The paper contains a comparison between the proposed network and the current bus network of the city of Rome.
