AN EVALUATION OF ACTIVE BUS PRIORITY SIGNALS

This paper describes the development and application of a methodology for the evaluation of an active bus priority signal system. A new evaluation framework for bus priority evaluations is proposed. Results are presented to show the impact of a bus priority scheme on intersection delay and delay variability. Two new measures, perceived delay and budgeted delay, are introduced and are shown to have important implications in the evaluation of bus priority schemes. It is concluded that active bus priority is justified under a wider range of conditions than has hitherto been considered to be the case. /Author/TRRL/
