Modeling bus rapid transit station bus queuing for operational analysis

Widana Pathiranage, Rakkitha, Bunker, Jonathan M., & Bhaskar, Ashish (2014) Modeling bus rapid transit station bus queuing for operational analysis. In Transportation Research Board 93rd Annual Meeting, 12-16 January 2014, Washington, DC. (Unpublished)


This paper presents mathematical models for BRT station operation, calibrated using microscopic simulation modelling. Models are presented for station capacity and bus queue length. No reliable model presently exists to estimate bus queue length. The proposed bus queue model is analogous to an unsignalized intersection queuing model.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
