Logan's run: Lane optimisation using genetic algorithms based on nsga-ii
Whilst bus lanes are an important tool to ensure bus time reliability their presence can be detrimental to urban traffic. In this paper a Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm (NSGA-II) has been adopted to study the effect of bus lanes on urban traffic in terms of location and time of operation. Due to the complex nature of this problem traditional search would not be feasible. An artificial arterial route has been modelled from real data to evaluate candidate solutions. The results confirm this methodology for the purpose of studying and identifying bus lane locations and times of operation. Additionally it is shown that bus lanes can exist on an arterial link without exclusively occupying a continuous lane for large periods of time. Furthermore results indicate a use for this methodology over a larger scale and potential near real-time operation.
