Buses in Prague no longer delayed


In Prague, some traffic lights have installed a new signal system that gives buses priority. This has made bus service much more reliable. Both the speed of the buses and the number of trips with public transport has increased.


In the City of Prague, public transport is based on subway, trams and buses. The buses serve approximately half of all public transport trips. However, the buses in the city used to have problems with delays since they got stuck in traffic on clogged streets.

Prague has now introduced a system that gives the buses active preference. An adaptive signal control has been set up at two crossroads with very much traffic. The signal-timing controller at the intersection is connected to the bus through radio communication. The system is linked to the timetables so it can determine the time difference for the bus lines. Buses ahead of the schedule do not receive priority.

Initially, the system was installed in eleven buses serving four selected bus lines. Since the measure was very successful, the bus priority system has been implemented at several other busy crossings in the city.

The results are faster, smoother, more reliable and predictable bus services, increased number of trips with public transport and less pollution and energy use. Another result is that Prague has set up a strategy for bus priority at all intersections. The new system is a good example of how even small investments can give good results.
