Standing Committee on Bus Transit Systems (AP050)

Intelligent Transportation Systems are making the bus transit system operations smarter and more efficient. Many transit agencies have adopted a number of different intelligent transportation systems in order to enhance and/or supplement their transit services to the public. This session discusses the analysis of bus-related traffic delays, bus commercial speed, and bus holding control. One of the intelligent transportation system technologies, bus priority signal and its implementation lesson, is presented. Audiences who are interested in bus transit operations and intelligent transportation systems are welcome to join this session.
