  • Program BackgroundProgram Background East Bay SMART Corridors program

    was initiated in 2001 to deliver a multimodal system along the regional arterials in the East Bay

    Project has integrated traffic Project has integrated traffic management, transit management and emergency management systems

    Project was launched in May 2004

  • Rapid Bus Deployment GoalsRapid Bus Deployment Goalsp p yp p y

    Reasonable cost Can address traffic engineering concerns

    regarding side street impacts Can be implemented with existing

    infrastructure Ease of maintenance Ease of implementation and operation


    Ease of implementation and operation

  • Definition of Rapid BusDefinition of Rapid Buse o o pe o o p

    Headway based schedule w/ maximum 10 minute headways Stops one-half to two-thirds of a mile apart, on average As many stops far side as possibley p p Signal coordination, transit signal priority, queue jump lanes Recognizable shelters, with Rapid branding and bus arrival g , p g

    information signs Recognizable vehicles, with Rapid branding and features which


    g p greduce dwell time

  • Transit Priority ApplicationTransit Priority Application

    Transit Priority is based on a headway systemheadway system If the bus is behind the pre-

    established headway, the request is granted

    If the bus is ahead of the scheduled headway the request is deniedheadway, the request is denied

    The headway is independent of travel direction


  • Transit Priority Application( t )

    Transit Priority Application( t )(cont.)(cont.)

    Transit Priority is granted using either: Early Green Extension of Main Street Green Currently set at 10% of cycle length or 10 seconds, based on

    typical cycle lengths of 90 to 100 seconds


  • Transit Priority ApplicationTransit Priority Application Detection is based on Optical Detection

    OpticomOpticom Detection zone is set 400 feet from intersection Based on 10 second arrival time to the

    i t tiintersection Logic is performed locally at the controller

  • Transit Priority Functional Transit Priority Functional SpecificationsSpecifications

    Transit priority operates for pre timed semi actuated and Transit priority operates for pre-timed, semi-actuated, and fully-actuated intersections Transit priority functions in free running and coordinated p y g

    modes Transit priority sequence operates by ending an opposing

    phase early to give an early green or extending the green phase early to give an early green or extending the green interval with the transit priority call Vehicle and pedestrian phases are not skipped to serve an


    p p ppopposing transit priority call

  • Transit Priority Functional Transit Priority Functional Specifications (cont.)Specifications (cont.)

    Transit priority calls are non-locking Transit priority sequence Transit priority calls are non-locking. Transit priority sequence terminates in the absence of a call.

    After serving a transit priority call, signal returns to normal operation within the next cycle under coordination modewithin the next cycle, under coordination mode.

    Transit priority calls are served on a first come first served basis. There are four (4) user settable headway time intervals selectable

    th h ti f d d d f k t bl through a time-of-day and day-of-week table. A reporting capability to record all TSP activities, including amount of

    green time reallocation
