Buses are traffic too

Remember the days of "traffic at a standstill, no reported problems with buses"? It's widely recognised that the links between the public transport world and the traffic management world is not what it could be. That's why we are so pleased with our work (joint with UTMC) to develop a bidirectional Bus Priority protocol, enabling you both to request priority and find out what happened. The specification is now published on this website in the members area.

Among other things this should allow much more intelligent collection and analysis of data showing where signal priority yields net benefits, and by how much. So one bus's priority call should no longer delay subsequent buses by interrupting traffic flow.

 


 

 

What is RTIG?

RTIG was established in 2000 to provide a focus for all those involved in UK bus RTI. We now have a comprehensive remit to cover the effective and efficient use of technology in the interests of passenger transport users, operators and sponsors.

RTIG has a wide membership, drawn from UK local authorities, bus and rail operators and system suppliers, and enjoy excellent working relationships with Government and other key industry groups.
