Development and Application of an Evaluation Framework for Urban Traffic Management and Intelligent Transport Systems

The aim of this paper is to present and apply a new evaluation framework for traffic management and Intelligent Transport Systems, to assist urban transport authorities in assessing relevant policies and technologies as to their performance. The principles behind performance measures and indices are outlined, along with a description of the framework development methodology. Two Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for the topics of mobility and traffic accidents respectively are formulated and operative definitions are presented. Then, the new KPIs are applied to a case study in the city of Paris, involving the introduction of a scheme granting priority to buses at signalized junctions. The results from the before- and after-analysis are reported and interpreted, not only in terms of the case study itself, but most importantly from the standpoint of the applicability of the evaluation framework.
