Public Transport Priority
Make Public Transport More Attractive.
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.
There are still many outdated systems in use that are based on short-range radio communication. These systems require all traffic light controllers to be equipped with receivers. All buses in a fleet need special transmitters, buses require an onboard system for positioning, which makes it an overall expensive system. At the same time, this technology is not very reliable and requires a lot of maintenance.
SWARCO's Smart Priority solution is the far better alternative.
