Bus Rapid Transit – a review with identification of research questions (Karl Kottenhoff)

  Period: 2007-09-01 - 2009-01-31

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is maybe the most interesting development for public transport internationally. Knowledge about BRT, its features, use and possibilities, is in Sweden limited. On the other » more
Comfort and good driver behaviour in rail and bus services (Karl Kottenhoff)

Period: 2007-10-01 - 2009-12-31

The ride comfort depends on the infrastructure as well as the vehicles’ features and quality. Another important factor is the driver behaviour. There is today a contradiction between the demand of » more
DYMOBUS: Dynamic Modelling of Bus and Car traffic (Dr. Wilco Burghout)

Period: 2007-09-01 - 2011-09-01

DYMOBUS extends the recent advances in mesoscopic traffic simulation for car traffic to include bus traffic. This enables the study of car-bus interaction especially in inner cities, where congestion » more

  Period: 2008-09-01 - 2011-08-31

OBIS will advance the role and opportunities of bike sharing as a valuable instrument to foster clean and energy-efficient sustainable modes of mobility in urban areas. It improves environmental » more
Public transport in dense corridors – bus, rail or parallell services? (Karl Kottenhoff)

Period: 2007-10-01 - 2009-06-30

Traditionally rail is thought of as the best solution for dense traffic corridors, but also bus services can manage high transport flows. If there is a rail system, tram, metro or train, there is a » more
Scheduling using a simulation tool - analysis of model and reality in complex railway systems. The Stockholm area example (Professor Bo-Lennart Nelldal)

Period: 2004-02-01 - 2007-01-31

The aim of the project is in a first step to analyse the possibilities to use rail traffic simulation as a tool to avoid conflicts in scheduling. Possible conflicts in the theoretic timetable may be » more
Travellers’ choice - a study of competing supplies of train services on the West Coast Main Line (Oskar Fröidh)

Period: 2010-03-01 - 2011-12-31

To investigate the effects on the travel market, this research will analyse passengers’ valuation and how capacity has been affected when several train operators compete on the same line. This » more
