Abstract

Bus priority measures are commonplace in our towns and cities. Whilst these can provide significant benefits to buses when designed correctly, design flaws often mean that they are controversial due to their ineffectiveness for public transport users and the perceived and actual disbenefits to drivers. This paper proposes that microsimulation offers an effective tool to aid in the design of effective bus priority measures, to quantify the benefits to all road users and also to assist in communicating proposals and their benefits to stakeholders.
