EVALUATION OF PRIORITY TECHNIQUES FOR HIGH OCCUPANCY VEHICLES ON ARTERIAL STREETS

This report presents an evaluation of the priority techniques for high-occupancy vehicles (buses and carpools) relative to arterial streets. The techniques considered include contraflow lanes, concurrent flow lanes, reversible lanes and priority at traffic signals. The report is aimed at an overall evaluation of the relative merits of each of the four techniques rather than an extensive documentation of the many implemented projects. /Author/
