ARTERIAL BUS LANE WARRANTS

This note reviews and extends a set of recently developed bus priority lane warrants, for use under Australian conditions. The role of warrants in the pre-evaluation planning of priority schemes and current trends toward allowing car pools to use arterial priority facilities are also noted. It has been demonstrated in many countries that under certain conditions, priority lanes can cost-effectively yield significant benefits and improve urban mobility, particularly during peak periods. However, such lanes should be viewed in the context of a wide range of transport and related options (e.g. Keyani and Putnam, 1977) which attempt to manage travel demand, optimise transport system supply and generally make more efficient use of existing transport infrastructure. /TRRL/
