We have a new presentation lined up for our May 11th Conference at Brookhaven National Labs. The presentation description is below:

“The Use of Modeling to Optimize the Implementation of Transit Signal Priority in Lower Manhattan”

Mark Yedlin
Director of Simulation Modeling Services
Greenman-Pedersen, Inc.


This presentation describes a modeling effort to resolve important issues for New York City’s first implementation of Transit Signal Priority (TSP) to expedite buses using its new wireless communication system (NYCWiN). Based on results of this modeling, the implementation will be operational later this year along a complex traffic corridor in Lower Manhattan running from the Staten Island Ferry Terminal, through the Financial District, Chinatown, and Lower East Side. An extensive field data collection effort was employed to model all vehicular, pedestrian, bicycle, and double-parked traffic within the corridor.

The presentation will identify the objectives and preliminary results of this modeling and focus on the data collection and manipulation activities as well as model development, calibration and validation.
