Implementing Specific Lane Length on Bus Route for Operation Delays Reduction

R. Ismail, M.H. Hafezi and A. Ismail


Buses are the most widely used in transit technology today because bus networks are easily accessible and cheaper than other kinds of public transportation. Proper Schedule of bus service is a main issue in the reliability of bus operation. To achieve this, minimizing of delays is one solution for increasing its reliability. In fact, static structure and the real operation of bus scheduling have some difference with each other, due to some cases, such as traffic congestion and the accumulation of delays of buses missions. This article describes an analysis of bus routes that included two sections: mixed traffic lane and exclusive traffic lane. Using the specific lane for bus operation can decrease delays in bus mission. We studied this issue in a real case inter-city bus operation. It has been highlighted that by using two types of lane in bus route included mixed traffic lane and exclusive bus lane delays of bus operation will be reduced. This high performance level can be shown by using statistical analysis.
