Transit 2014, Vol. 4

TRB’s Transportation Research Record (TRR): Journal of the Transportation Research Board, No. 2418 consists of 15 articles that chronicles the jobs–housing balance of bus commuters in Beijing, China; an evaluation of presignals at oversaturated signalized intersections; transit signal priority with connected vehicle technology; combinatorial optimization for the Guangzhou, China bus rapid transit system; and route selection and running-time savings estimation for multiscenario all-door bus boarding.

This TRR also examines optimal connected urban bus networks of priority lanes; factors contributing to bus lane obstruction and usage in New York City; buses with high level of service in Nantes, France; modeling bus dwell time with decision tree–based methods; and operational comparison of transit signal priority strategies.

Additionally, this TRR documents user behavior in multiroute bus corridors; ways to quantify the effects of modal conflicts on transit reliability; flex scheduling for bus arrival time prediction; an examination of the characteristics of intercity bus passengers in Michigan; and regulating intercity bus stops in New York City.
