Quick Bite (Transit): Transit Prioritization Tools and Practices
In recent years, municipal transit agencies have started expanding their on-street transit prioritization toolkits. Many have started implementing dedicated lanes for buses and public transit. Well-implemented bus lanes can help increase travel speeds and efficiency for the bus routes that use them. Other transit prioritization measures--aside from dedicated lanes--include such things as Transit Signal Priority (TSP), off-board fare collection, or queue-jump lanes, and the associated infrastructure such as signs and pavement markings. With differing hours of operation, pavement and sign design treatments, and methods of enforcement, how can agencies standardize the design and implementation of transit prioritization measures to ensure they are efficient and used correctly?
