Abstract
This paper examines the design of high performance transit network that minimizes the transit agency costs, the time of transit users in the system and the travel time of car users. Surface transit services need segregated lanes to achieve a target cruising speed, so that the transit network length has a significant impact on the traffic performance. This effect has been modeled in this paper by the Macroscopic Fundamental Diagram (MFD). The optimization process encompasses two different approac...
