Title: Transit action performance model (TAPM). Final report

Abstract

TAPM is a program package designed to help a traffic engineer or transit planner evaluate the impacts of actions intended to improve the movement of people on urban roads. At the present time TAPM contains four models. The signal-preemption model permits the user to evaluate different bus-preemption signal strategies at an isolated intersection with no nearside bus stop. The bus-stop-spacing model helps the user to determine the optimum bus stop spacing for a bus route along a straight road with bus stops spaced equally apart. The signal-setting model is used for finding a fixed cycle length that minimizes total person delay at a simple crossing intersection. The HOV model is intended for the analysis of impacts of a proposed high-occupancy-vehicle lane of a freeway. The final report contains the list of necessary equipment, diskettes, and the basic instructions of how to get started, as well as a short description of the models.
