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. Several scenarios are evaluated, involving two TSP strategies; existing and reduced bus headways; and two traffic peak periods. The study findings could give practitioners information concerning TSP implementation in a small-medium size city.
