Evaluations of the QUARTET PLUS and TABASCO Projects in Europe found that transit signal priority reduced travel time for transit vehicles by 5 to 15 percent.
Three projects investigated the impacts of public transit priority systems. Each of the projects demonstrated significant delay or travel time reductions for transit vehicles.
- Travel time reductions ranged from 5 to 15 percent in the QUARTET PLUS and TABASCO projects, with field trials in Toulouse, Turin, Gothenburg, and Munich.
- The project in Valencia, Spain found a 30 percent reduction in delay for vehicles already behind schedule.
