LET TRANSYT SPEED TRAFFIC FLOW

TRANSYT-7F is the American version of a computer program developed in the United Kingdom to enable traffic engineers to optimize their coordinated traffic signal systems to reduce stops, delays, and fuel consumption. TRANSYT-7F, funded by FHWA, is written in FORTRAN-IV and has been successfully executed on a number of different mainframe computers. As part of TRANSYT-7F's development, FHWA has prepared a comprehensive user's manual to serve as an instructional and reference guide. One of the most important aspects of the development of TRANSYT-7F is the application of the program to eleven cities selected to represent a range of geographical locations, populations, number of intersections to be retimed, types of networks and ages of existing signal timing plans. It has been found that these traffic-signal retiming projects have provided significant reductions in travel time, fuel consumption, and vehicle operating costs.
