Dynamic Priority of PT in Trondheim

This paper describes the implementation of a new real-time system for buses that are also utilized as a basis for signal priority in Trondheim, Norway. The focus for the paper is the results for public transport with regards to reductions in travel time along the priority areas. The paper discusses the principle and gives some data about accuracy. Also the lack of local communication from bus to intersection is focused. All data communication for bus positioning data is processed through GPRS connections to a central system. After processing, the proper requests for bus priority are channeled through a technical network towards the individual traffic light intersections managed by adaptive signaling.
