Modelling busway operation with mixed stopping and non-stopping buses

Widana Pathiranage, Amila Gayan Rakkitha Thilakarathne (2015) Modelling busway operation with mixed stopping and non-stopping buses. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis investigated the complexity of busway operation with stopping and non-stopping buses using field data and microscopic simulation modelling.

The proposed approach made significant recommendations to transit authorities to achieve the most practicable system capacity for existing and new busways. The empirical equations developed in this research and newly introduced analysis methods will be ideal tools for transit planners to achieve optimal reliability of busways.

Impact and interest:

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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
