Cellular Automaton Modeling of a Connected Vehicles-Based Bus Lane with Intermittent Priority

Bus lane with intermittent priority (BLIP) is a new method to alleviate traffic jams. It improves reliability of bus services and better utilized road resources. There are limited research studies on BLIP and additional study on this area is needed. More importantly, influences to the adjacent lane, impacts on the capacity of BLIP by different bus departure intervals, setting conditions for deployment of BLIP such as reasonable clear distance and traffic density are not clear until now. This paper is focused on the capacity of connected vehicles (CV) based BLIP lane with cellular automaton (CA) simulation. The recommended traffic density range and clear distance of BLIP, and how BLIP affects the adjacent lane are also studied in this paper.
