EVALUATION OF THE FIRST GENERATION UTCS/BPS CONTROL STRATEGY - VOL. 1 - TECHNICAL REPORT

This report presents the results of the evaluation of the alternatives of the first-generation traffic control strategy for the computerized Urban Traffic Control System and Bus Priority System in Washington, D. C. Five traffic control alternatives were evaluated to assess their relative impact on traffic during typical weekday morning, midday, and evening periods. Significant differences between alternatives were identified through measurements from the UTCS/BPS surveillance system and moving-car studies. This volume is the first of three reports and contains a discussion of the overall project and findings.
