Mobility budgets dictate the limit of CO2 per capita, which is calculated based on the mode of travel and distance. Mobility budgets are one of the final goals of the optimisation of transportation network, when the aspects of fairness and equity are considered. The main problem arises when we focus on multiple criteria of fairness and equity. In addition, it was observed that any drastic change in behaviour leads to inadequate initial parametrisation, especially under the effects of COVID-19. This can also mean that optimising transportation network according to class-to-be is most likely to cause behaviour changes in relation to the use of public transport. The aim of this article is to define the structure of optimisation task, based on mobility budget provided on a monthly basis. This research was based on public transportation data and mobile activity data. The former was used to determine the usage of public transport during 2017 and 2022, while the latter provided enough information to determine exactly how COVID-19 affected the behaviour of city districts and provide concrete information regarding necessary re-planning measures for public transportation station locations. In result, the optimisation solution was proposed by defining case-specific objective functions and constraints.
