Abstract
According to the traffic problems such as traffic congestion and buses moving slowly, the paper based on the idea of bus priority to introduced the per capita minimum delay of signal control method. In this paper, the intersection of Huaguang Road and Liuquan Road in Zibo Zhangdian was used as an example to propose a bus signal timing plan. By considering the impact of traffic delays and designing the phase of the intersection. It can reduce the per capita delay and improve service levels. Using Trans Modeler to simulate the timing scheme, the results showed that the optimized scheme can effectively reduce the per capita delay and ensure priority access for buses.
