A STUDY ON THE INTRODUCTION OF BUS RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEM IN ASIAN DEVELOPING CITIES : A Case Study on Bangkok Metropolitan Administration Project
This paper proposed the signal control strategy for bus operating along two-lane arterial with nearside bus stop. The proposed concept is a reduction of lost of green time when bus stopping at nearside bus stop by shorting the ineffective green time and extend the green time back on the next cycle in order to balance green ratio. To evaluate its performance, the proposed signal control strategy was compared with the normal signal control strategy through simulation. The results reveal that proposed strategy could improve significantly the bus operation performance and other traffic under existing high traffic congestion.
