A Microsimulation Model for BRT Systems Analysis

In recent years, the attention focused on the study of bus rapid transit (BRT) systems has been growing significantly because they improve mobility without underestimating sustainable mobility issues. First, an overview of literature on the available analytic models for performances analysis of BRT systems has been carried out. Then, a new dynamic microsimulation model has been implemented by Arena Rockwell Software to simulate and evaluate different BRT systems configurations. Validation is done achieving a comparison between model's results and those obtained by an analytic model. Finally, the model has been applied in a real-life case study for a new BRT line in Rome.
