Analysis and Evaluation of Intelligent Bus Rapid Transit Systems in Cyprus
MetadataShow full item record
The objective of this paper is to present the process of developing a traffic simulation model for evaluating a number of Bus Rapid Transit system components in a highly congested traffic network in Nicosia, Cyprus. The scenarios to be evaluated include the use of dedicated bus lanes and high occupancy vehicle lanes. The assessment is carried out via validated microscopic simulation models of the traffic network under study. As seen from the analysis of the results, a viable long term solution to enhancing the bus transport mode is drawn where significant improvements are achieved regarding a number of measures of effectiveness, such as travel time, delays and speed.
