The safety implications of implementing bus lanes on road corridors remain unclear given that findings from previous research have been mixed. The authors recent research demonstrated improvements in road safety resulting from bus priority in Melbourne however causal factors for this effect remain to be explored. In this study, an experimental microscopic traffic simulation modelling.. read more →

Drivers’ lane changing violations at a curbside bus stop on an undivided three-lane roadway were investigated. Logit models were developed to determine contributing factors to the violations. Bicycle lane presence, low opposing traffic volume and longer bus dwell time at a bus stop were associated with a higher probability of a lane changing violation by.. read more →

This study explored the feasibility of using movable and reusable boarding and alighting (B&A) pads at bus stops. Potential design alternatives in terms of materials and structural support for these pads were evaluated. The review focused on the existing and alternative design materials, especially in applications other than for transit purposes, which could potentially replace.. read more →
