Abstract

Taipei Bus Station is the first multi-level bus terminal and hub launched in the heart of Taipei metropolitan area. Different from OASIS21 in Nagoya and Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City, significant congestion has been experienced during peak hours at a T-junction in the terminal due to the three-level structure in the high-density district. Based on the findings of an earlier study by the authors for a signal control model, a traffic demand forecasting model is needed to upgrade the existing pre-timed control strategy to adaptive control level. The artificial neural network approach is employed for constructing the demand forecasting model taking into account the relevant traffic flow information provided by the RFID readers embedded in the terminal monitoring systems. The results show that separate forecasting models for peak and non-peak periods would be desirable for both approaches at the T-junction.
