Ever increasing traffic load on freeways calls for smart solutions to improve throughput. With the uprise and standardization of C-ITS, accuracy and latency of traffic state measurements are immensely improved, while the span of control is increased. In this paper, a traffic control algorithm that aims to prevent breakdown at recurring...

In order to reduce congestion numbers on the highways, ramp metering can be used. The currently existing ramp metering control strategies are of a macroscopic nature. This means that the average occupancy on the main lane or average flow values on the main lane determine the temporarily fixed cycle times for the traffic light located near the on...

Dynamic traffic management (DTM) plays an important role from Dutch policy perspective to prevent road congestion and has been developed from control strategies to services. Five traffic control centers, 22 different DTM systems with 35 functions and over 50,000 DTM components make up the national traffic management network in the Netherlands....

Flooding events not only cause physical damage to the road infrastructure and roadside systems, yet they potentially lead to significant traffic disruptions over the network which have a large impact on the sustainability of urban cities. According to several climate change scenarios, flooding events as a result of intense precipitation are...

With the increasing popularity of active modes (mainly pedestrians and bicycles), the spaces shared amongst these modes are also rising. Such spaces are often referred to as shared spaces and can often be seen in public areas near train stations, shopping streets and educational institutions. Such spaces are said to enhance safety and resolve...

We test the effect of a variety of feature sets representing passenger volumes, weather conditions and train interactions, when defined as features and used in a gradient boosting model to predict passenger train delays 20 minutes to the future from the last registration point. Effects of the features and their combinations on the prediction...

The population of The Netherlands is ageing. It is important to offer suitable transportation options for the elderly to keep them participating in social activities to prevent lonelines. This research investigated the preferences and usage of bus services of elderly in urban areas in The Netherlands and the corresponding heterogeneity. 256...

The discussion involving BRT and LRT is well alive among policymakers, who often rely on personal preferences or, as it is called in literature, on “blind commitment” towards one system or the other for their decision-making. The reason for choosing a system according to personal taste is also caused by the unknown preferences that public...

The 4th generation of bike-sharing, also known as dockless- and free-floating bike-sharing is a new type of bike-sharing system. It allows users to start and end their rentals anywhere in the service area. In the spring of 2018 Mobike started their services in the city of Delft. This research is set up around data collected in Delft about the...

The aim of this thesis is to gain insights into the impact that various variables have on the topological evolution of a public transit network in a polycentric urban region. These variables are: the spatial structure of the polycentric urban region, the demand distribution, the operational costs and multimodality versus unimodality. To gain...

The aim of this thesis was to find the preferences of bus users in rural areas of the Netherlands for alternative public transport. Two alternatives for bus were proposed: a demand responsive transport service and a multi-modal alternative that combined express bus with bike-sharing services for last mile transport. A stated choice survey was...

There is a need to know flow capacities of common bottlenecks of cycle storages because an increasing number of large cycle storages are being designed. Flow capacity values are not available from literature nor is a suitable method to determine those values. This research contributes to filling these research gaps, by developing a method to...

As the population grows, the need for mobility has been growing in recent years. In the case of urban mobility, this trend is subsequently followed by the existence of high-frequency bus transit service since last decades. This service is more prone to the bus-bunching problem since the headway between the consecutive buses can be very short,...

The effects of e-commerce on consumer mobility are studied by means of a structural equation modelling analysis. Shopping value and orientation preferences directly affect shopping frequency in the online and offline environment, besides an indirect effect from shopping value via orientation preference to shopping frequency is found significant....

There is a high probability that communication between vehicles in a traffic network and between vehicles and traffic controllers will be the next major wave of technological innovation in traffic. The collection of data of communicating vehicles in traffic offers live information about the traffic conditions, which can be used to control...

The current 1.5kV railway traction power supply system is reaching its limits in the Netherlands and therefore, ProRail is investigating the replacement of this system by the 3kV railway traction power supply system. This study will investigate how effective the 3kV traction power supply system can increase the capacity of the rail...

In my thesis, I have done research into the optimization of stopping patterns and frequencies of public transport services within a network. I have developed a model that takes both passenger and operator costs into account. The model has been run for a small fictional network and for the metro and train network of Amsterdam, to explore how the...

This master thesis aims to gain new empirical insights into longitudinal driving behavior by means of the enumeration of a new hybrid car-following (CF) model which combines parametric and non parametric formulation. On one hand, the model, which predicts the drivers acceleration given a set of variables, benefits from innovative machine...

At large-scale events, the large inflow of visitors travelling by car often causes queues on the roads in the direct surroundings of the event. These queues can spill back to the main road network, where through traffic is driving as well: this through traffic will be hindered by the congestion, while those travellers don’t have the event venue...
