Intelligent water drops (IWDs) algorithm is extremely effective heuristic procedure that is believed to have wide applicability for generating optimum solutions for the traveling-salesman problem in combinatorial optimization problems. Urban transit network design and frequency setting (TNDFS) are a combinatorial optimization problem that attracts the attention of researchers. In this study, computational results with IWDs for Mandl benchmark TNDFS problems are reported and compared to a few other meta-heuristic approaches.
