PUBLIC TRANSIT RIGHT-OF-WAY

This paper deals basically with when, where, and how priority treatment for transit should be provided. It is suggested that total people delay be used as the criterion for developing standards. Several examples are cited of exclusive transit rights-of-way, particularly in Europe and western Canada. In addition, some examples are given of exclusive signals used in Europe and in Edmonton, Alberta. The Edmonton experience is described including public participation before and after an exclusive lane was implemented. The paper concludes that there is a need in transportation agencies for a more uniform basis of data collection before and after implementation so that better standards can be developed.
