This study proposes a new model and approach for solving a realistic extension of the Time-Dependent Traveling Salesman Problem, by using the concept of distance between interval-valued intuitionistic fuzzy sets. For this purpose, we developed an interval-valued fuzzy degree repository based on the relations between rush hour periods and traffic regions in the "city center areas", and then we utilized the interval-valued intuitionistic fuzzy weighted arithmetic average to aggregate fuzzy information to be able to quantify the delay in any given trip between two nodes (cities). The proposed method is illustrated by a simple numerical example.
