    Abstract

    In this paper we are studying the trade-off of urban road space dedicated to cars and buses (or trams) in two cities: Zurich and San Francisco. We employ the three-dimensional vehicle Macroscopic Fundamental Diagrams (3D-vMFD) which consist of creating the MFDs for networks with different levels of public transport operations. Based on the 3D-vMFD, we analyze and evaluate network performances when the percentage of dedicated bus lanes varies in a city. Simulation results show that when there are more dedicated bus lanes, the performance of cars worsens and the transit performance improves.
