RESERVED BUS LANES ON URBAN FREEWAYS: A MACROMODEL

An increasing number of cities are becoming interested in operating buses on reserved lanes so that people can be moved more effectively. This paper develops a person-delay model that can be used in determining the feasibility and practicality for implementing a contraflow freeway bus lane in urban areas. The model deals with peak-hour trips on a six-lane, two-direction freeway, and it uses certain relationships to demonstrate its applicability. The derivation of the model is shown, and the paper discusses, by a step-by-step procedure, how transportation planners can easily use it.
