Abstract
This research focuses on the macroscopic modeling of multimodal systems. Specifically, we investigate the existence of macroscopic relations in the Barcelona urban traffic system, including mixed-traffic (bus-car lanes or individual bus-only lanes) and we propose solutions to improve mobility. We study how the throughput of passengers and vehicles depends on the operational characteristics of the system, the level of congestion and the interactions between different modes of transport. Using a m...
