Analysis of BRT Priority Signal Control System Implementation in Major Intersections of Khon Kaen City

Generally exclusive guideways for BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) sets up on surface and has to cross many intersections so that priority signal control such as Public Transportation Priority System (PTPS) is required to promise effective operation of BRT. However, such signal control can't be applied directly to BRT system in Asian cities because the traffic signal control in those cities is quite different with that in the city of a developed country and there are many unique transportation modes such as para-transit. In this study, the impacts of introduction of PTPS at two major intersections on the planed BRT route which will pass through national highway Route No. 2 (Mittraphap Road) in Khon Kaen city were estimated by using a micro simulation model.
