Evaluation of Transit Signal Priority Strategies for Small-Medium Cities

Completed: Dec 2001

This study provides a theoretical evaluation of Transit Signal Priority (TSP) strategies in small-medium size areas to alleviate missed connections, enhance service, and attract more transit riders. A case study using a portion of Fargo's downtown network was evaluated using the VISSIM traffic simulation model. Several scenarios were evaluated, involving two TSP strategies; existing and reduced bus headways; and two traffic peak periods.

Keywords: ITS Transit Signal Priority, VISSIM
