THE MODELLING OF BUS JOURNEY TIMES FOR AREA TRAFFIC CONTROL

TRANSYT 5, the latest version of the TRRL's program for designing the offsets between traffic signals in an area control system, allows for buses to be considered as a separate network. This is an important development in the light of world oil prices and the current desire to assist public transport in town centres. The model used for bus movement between signals is a modification of that used previously for general traffic, but, as buses are fewer in number and less predictable, the authors felt the need for further examination. Data on bus flow were obtained from a number of sites in Manchester, the model tested and some suggestions made for improvement. (A). /TRRL/
