Abstract

Nowadays, number of urban journey is increasing due to rapid economic growth in developing country. Since government policy is to encouragement people to using the public transportation. In the meantime, Buses network is biggest public transportation in urban area, because it is operating costs and administrative costs are cheaper than other public transportation means. One of important problems in bus operation is decline the delays of buses. Unfortunately, during a traffic jam and high volume of passenger demand the delays of buses is very plenty. This article represents an analysis of new method for bus operation, which reduces the delays of buses to running their operation. Methodology of this study is using the exclusive bus lane in one part of bus route. Hence, a case study based on an actual public bus operation in Tehran, Iran is used to demonstrate the usefulness of devoting a specific lane for bus service. It was found operators of transportation service want to reduce the delays of buses due to not increase their fleet size. It has been highlighted where buses using exclusive lane, their delay is reduce and arrive in destination terminal timely. The results of case study also can a useful method for long bus lines in large cities of the developingcountries.
