Bus Priority Treatment Guidelines

Publication Date: 4/1/2011
Publication Number: 20116410

This guidebook provides a general guide for the implementation of priority bus treatments within the Metropolitan Washington region. The guidebook is intended for professionals who oversee traffic operations or are involved in the management of roadways because the strategies needed to improve bus operations can have implications for traffic. Common physical and operational treatments applied along corridors to improve transit operations through decreasing travel times and improving reliability for the passenger are evaluated. The guidebook is intended to answer frequently-posed questions that state and local agencies may have about the use of a specific priority treatment being considered and the potential impacts on traffic operations of that treatment. General applicability and examples where these treatments have been effective in other cities are presented for user information.
