A SET OF PROGRAMS FOR TRAM AND BUS CONTROL

PROGRAMMAPAKKET TRAM- EN BUSBEHEERSING

Within the Municipal Department of Traffic and Transportation of Amsterdam a series of compatible computer programs has been developed. The programs can calculate the effect of traffic management schemes and certain traffic management policies. This publication describes the state of the art of public transport programs. These programs will be coordinated with similar programs for non-public-transport traffic. This article gives a brief review of how the programs are to be used. Some examples of trip-time and regularity-measurements of two running projects are given. The results show a considerable improvement in speed or regularity of public transport services, depending on the type of measurement such as the construction of free lanes and priority on traffic light controlled intersections. Improved regularity results in decrease of the average waiting times at the stops. A higher speed results in less in-vehicle-travel-time. /TRRL/
