The Analysis of Travel Time Reliability on Beijing Arterials

The sustained growth of the economy and the continued improvements to the quality of life lead to an increase in the value of time, especially in the developed countries. People want to control their time more accurately. So it’s a great need for people to know how much time they should take to arrive at their destination. Travel time reliability as the possibility to arrive at the destination at a given time, has thereby become an increasingly important attribute for assessing the performance of road networks. Consequently, many efforts have been undertaken in this field and a lot has been achieved. This paper will analyse travel time reliability to describe the traffic condition of Beijing. Several common methods are used to analysis the travel time reliability.
