Public Transport Priority
Travelling quicker with public transport
Public transport priority at traffic signals is an important measure to increase the efficiency of urban traffic management to better handle ever-growing traffic volumes. It makes public transport more attractive due to faster travel times and improved service regularity. Higher passenger satisfaction is complemented by additional benefits including improved energy-efficiency and reduced pollution.
The public transport priority system KSR drastically reduces stops at traffic lights.
The TicPrio-system provides buses, trams, and emergency vehicles priority over other traffic at signalised intersections.
UTOPIA is an adaptive traffic control system designed to optimise flows and give selective priority to public transport without sacrificing travel times for private traffic.
