EVALUATION OF THE FIRST GENERATION UTCS/BPS CONTROL STRATEGY - VOL. 2 - TECHNICAL APPENDICES

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 second of three reports and contains the technical appendices including the detailed discussion of field studies, sample forms, and the documentation and user guides for the computer programs developed for processing and evaluating detector and moving-car data. The technical report includes a discussion of the overall project and the conclusions.
