Transit Signal Priority

In Progress

After assessing the state of the practice, recent experience and modern communications technology available for the bus TSP design, RTD developed a unique TSP approach by utilizing RTD’s cellular communications technology to implement TSP operation.

Project Overview

Summer 2020 - Fall 2023

Traffic Signal Priority (TSP) is an operational strategy that facilitates the movement of transit vehicles (usually those in-service) through traffic-signal controlled intersections. TSP is considered to be one of the popular transit management strategies that can be used to help transit service become more reliable, faster, and more cost-effective.
