Abstract: The impact of signalized intersections on the bus running process is analyzed between bus stops, and the predicted travel time is divided into two parts: passing intersection time and link travel time. The bus stopping and queuing characteristics at signalized intersections with bus stops upstream are analyzed, and the passing intersection time model is established in different cases with macroscopic traffic flow theory. The experimental data show that the prediction method based on macroscopic traffic flow has high precision to meet the forecasting requirements for travel time between bus stops.
