This paper presents an integrated traffic analysis package called AAP (the Arterial Analysis Package). AAP, which was developed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), contains three of the most widely used design and analysis programs for timing traffic signals on arterial streets. The general framework of AAP is discussed and the operation of AAP demonstrated using field data from an existing arterial system. The Arterial Analysis Package consists of three major programs: the SOAP 84, PASSER II-84 and the TRANSYT-7F programs. SOAP was included for its strength in analyzing individual intersections while PASSER and TRANSYT were included for their strengths in analyzing linear signal systems.
