Civil and Environmental Engineering PhD Dissertation Defense: Wei Feng
Wednesday, April 23, 2014 - 12:00pm

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is pleased to announce Wei Feng's PhD Dissertation Defense: "Analyses of Bus Travel Time Reliability and Transit Signal Priority at the Stop-to-Stop Segment Level."

Date: Wednesday, April 23, 2014
Time: 12:00pm
Location: Engineering Building 315 (ITS Lab)
Adviser: Dr. Miguel Figliozzi

Transit travel time reliability is affected by many factors but mainly by demand factors, traffic signals and roadway conditions. Transit agencies have implemented strategies such as transit signal priority (TSP) to improve transit travel time reliability. However, there have been no studies of the performance of TSP systems integrating traffic, signal, and TSP data. This research provides novel methodologies to quantify the impacts of intersection signal delay and evaluate the performance of TSP systems.
