Abstract
Compared with the past decades, the methodologies of bus priority at traffic signals is being researched more and more extensively because of the strong development of public transport. Several methods have been used to attract people to use public transport. These methods may be divided into two categories: facility-design-based measures and signal-control-based measures. In this paper, a signal-control-based methodology is presented and implemented in a microscopic simulation environment emulating the network of Nanjing, China, with realistic traffic conditions. The objective of the control is to reduce the average delay of buses without creating major disturbances to the rest of the network. In addition to a fixed-time strategy combined with public transport priority (PTP), the traffic-responsive urban control (TUC) strategy with PTP is implemented in order to reduce the buses delays.
