Study on Intersection Energy Consumption and Emissions under Various Bus Station Locations

Urban intersections are the locations where traffic fleets produce heavy emissions. The locations of bus stations at intersections have a certain effect on the energy consumption and emissions in this area. In this paper, in order to simulate the energy consumption and emissions of the entire intersection under different circumstances of site selection of bus stations, the simulation platform VISSIM-PERE was built on the basis of the microscopic simulation software VISSIM and the micro-energy consumption model PERE. As a case study, the operation states of the Moyu Road-Zepu Road intersection under different bus station layouts were simulated, and corresponding consumption and emissions were evaluated. The influence of bus station layouts on traffic flow was analyzed. Under low-flow conditions, it is recommended that a bus station be set near the intersection entrance, which can reduce the average number of bus stops and contribute to the reduction of energy consumption and emissions. Under high-flow conditions, the reverse is true. Energy consumption will be when a bus station is set near the exit because of the congestion reduction.
