Minimizing the stop time of private vehicles at intersections with LRT signal priority systems
Paper i proceeding, 2020

There are some strategies suggested to improve the performance of intersections and increase the demand for public vehicles by prioritizing them. To this end, several methods have been used such as Transit Signal Priority (TSP) system for Light Rail transit (LRT). LRT signal priority is a timing strategy that gives priority to LRTs at signalized intersections through changing the sequence of phases, extending green time and reducing red time at LRT's phase. In this paper, we propose a model to improve LRT signal priority systems. The developed model minimizes the green extension and red reduction of LRT's phase by estimating an optimal speed for LRTs reaching the stop line. Consequently, the priority of LRTs would be maintained while the performance of private vehicles would be improved by decreasing their stop time.
