Spatiotemporal Effects of Segregating Different Vehicle Classes on Separate Lanes
Spatiotemporal analysis of real freeway traffic reveals that carpool lanes are not as damaging as previously reported. To the contrary, the analysis unveils a surprising benefit of carpool lanes that should be even greater when special lanes are used to segregate very different vehicle classes, such as buses and cars. The paper pursues this finding and shows how reserving lanes on freeways and city streets for bus-use only can favorably affect not just buses, but also cars.
