Efficient implementation of traffic management strategies prioritising public transport is essential for maximising the benefits of dedicated bus lanes. The priority given to public transport vehicles is subject to an appropriate level of service being provided for pedestrians while taking the necessary steps to avoid spillbacks of private vehicles. The strategy enables authorities not only to address various situations, but also to constantly improve and enrich the signal program library in order to ensure its compatibility with evolving traffic situations.
The main objective of this measure is to increase the use of sustainable modes of transport by encouraging the use of public transport while maintaining a good level of service to other road users. The specific measure level objective was to improve reliability of public transport by reducing the variance of public transport travel times through innovative use of the signal programs by at least 5%.
